The details of Eric’s life are quite inconsequential. He has captained two championship trivia teams, Resting Bitch Face and Fuck Mountain. He is proud of the fact that he has seen both O-Town and Hanson live in concert. He once organized Breakfast with Krampus, in which the holiday demon received donated gifts for area children, and berated/beat greedy adults who came empty handed. He formerly hosted a monthly Cards Against Humanity tournament at a bear bar in Boston. One summer he co-organized an elaborate miniature golf tournament across New York State (and into Canada!). His team once tied for first in a “RuPaul’s Drag Race” trivia — Eric won the lipsynch for your life but lost the third tiebreaker question, and will never forgive Cynthia Lee Fontaine for it. He interned at Marvel Comics during the Clinton Administration. He once unknowingly guest starred on a homemade “Dynasty”-esque soap opera his friends created in his honor. He credits the movie “Flash Gordon” with turning him gay. In between all of this, he was a newspaper writer/editor and entertainment blogger for 15 years before gleefully selling out for the wonderful world of fundraising. He now lives in Queens, NY, which he finds a bit on the nose.
