Thank you for pointing your mouse or thumb my way.
My name is Eric and I live and work in Oakland, California. I'm passionate about environmental equity and our shared lands and ecosystems. I work for clean water, healthy air, and a stable climate. I believe every community deserves access to the outdoors, and that there's no "right" way to be outside.
I aim to live these values working at the Sierra Club, where I am Advancement Director for Northern California. I work with our strongest supporters to resource our grassroots campaigns and programs. I am a proud member of the Sierra Employee Alliance (UAW Local 2103) where I serve as Vice Chair and do my best to advocate for my coworkers.
In my downtime, I lose a lot to my partner, Alex, in disc golf and I'm doing my best to revive a reading habit. Help me turn screen time into novel or nonfiction time by recommending to me your favorite book or what you're currently reading! Here's what I am nosing through:
The White Tiger by Aravind Adiga
Current Fiction Read:
The Decameron by Giovanni Boccaccio
Current Historical Read:
The Angle of Repose by Wallace Stegner
In case you've visited for professional info, below are a few projects I've led to get a sample of my skills and work history. My career bio is kept up-to-date on LinkedIn so if you'd like more comprehensive info, head over there!
I am doing my best to steer clear of social media. If you want to get in touch the old-fashioned way, use the below contact form and I will reply by email. You can also send me an encrypted direct message via Keybase (the link will only work if you have it installed).
In my downtime, I enjoy harnessing the power of data visualizations to map various parts of life. If you too share this hobby, you'll probably enjoy:
Libib for a (non-Amazon/Goodreads) way to track your reading 📚
Peakbagger for logging mountain summits and hikes 🌄
Mob Rule - the name confuses me too - for county counting 🌏
Strava for workouts of all kinds, but keep your data private! 🏃
OpenFlights for recording flights and estimating carbon footprint ✈️
Share with me your favorite tool! Just getting started with growing positive habits through data viz? Reach out above - I'd be happy to share some tips and tricks.
