Hi there! Thanks for pointing your mouse or thumb this way.
My name is Eric and I live and work in Oakland, California. I am the Admin Coordinator at the Sierra Club Foundation, where I handle a variety of tasks for our donors, board, environmental grantmaking, and public communications. Beyond the day job, I am a volunteer organizer with East Bay for Everyone, a regional advocate for more sensible Bay Area housing policy, a resilient and equitable transit system, and stronger tenant protections.
Away from these professional engagements, I am often seen buried in a map plotting to connect two trails or a set of mountains. This year, I hope to run a 50 kilometer race over my backyard East Bay hills 🌄
Below is a bit more detail on my work and interests, broken up by a few photos of recent adventures. If you would like to get a better sense of my professional background, my LinkedIn page is kept brief and up-to-date, and my Twitter handle holds a few thought bubbles. Please do reach out! Whether it's professionally or perhaps to uncover a shared connection, I make an effort to respond.
