Short Bio

Eric’s unique perspective comes from having spent time on all sides of the business. He began as an actor. After obtaining a degree in Theatre Arts at San Francisco State, he acted professionally in Los Angeles. His stint in front of the camera taught him valuable lessons: memorization is hard, auditioning is harder, and acting is an art that has its own language.

Eric’s interests quickly drew him behind the camera. He worked in the celebrity VO departments at both the William Morris and Special Artists Agencies. However his move to work in the scale VO department at Special Artists is where he found his true passion: directing actors. 10,000 auditions later, he’d raised the level of the agency’s in-house bookings to its highest ever.

Now an experienced coach and director, Eric went on to freelance for several years before taking a full-time position at Vivendi Games (now Activision Blizzard). Eric was soon promoted to Head of the Voice Over Department, overseeing its internal recording studio and all aspects of the voice-over process. His attention to detail, quality and service soon prompted the company to move all its business in-house for the first time. Hundreds of thousands of lines of dialogue later, having recorded A-list actors on three continents, Eric has honed a work philosophy that balances good common-sense business practices with the creative.
