Lead For America: Director of Strategic Initiatives

Eric’s the Director of Strategic Initiatives at Lead For America, where he supports the growth of the American Connection Corps program. His roots are in the concrete jungle of New York City, but he’s always harbored an authentic curiosity toward communities so different from where he was raised. Country music and small-town minor league baseball are his daily jam, and he brings the pace, passion, and ambition of New York to support communities nationwide. Eric’s worked in both the private (Deloitte, Google) and public (Texas Education Agency) sectors, and he recently wrapped up grad school at Stanford. He’s based in Austin, TX.
