When he’s not at his desk he can usually be found hiking or kayaking in Montana’s great outdoors and serving as a board member for the Island Range chapter of the Montana Wilderness Association. The Big Sky landscape also inspired his short story, “At Jackson Creek,” which won Montana Public Radio’s 50th anniversary short fiction contest in 2015; a second story of his will be included in a forthcoming 2017 fiction anthology about Montana’s darker side.

Eric’s also an avid photographer with work appearing in Montana Outdoors magazine, the Farcountry Press Glacier National Park calendar, the Great Falls Tribune, Backpacker magazine, the Billings Gazette, Patagonia’s Tumblr feed, the Central Montana and Glacier Country travel guides, and his mom’s living room.
