Buffalo, New York
Ever interested in new experiences, Eric always enjoyed exploring the world. His childhood appetite for adventure stories set in exotic locales developed into a desire to find his own adventures in far off lands.
After finishing university in his home town of Buffalo, New York, he moved to New York City. By night, he enjoyed the culture and nightlife of the greatest city on Earth. By day, he worked hard as a Financial Analyst. He first found success at Salomon Smith Barney, but it was with Christie's auction house that he had the opportunity to move to London.
An avid outdoorsman, Eric enjoys the simple pleasures of forest and trail. Racing sunrise on the slopes of Kilimanjaro and finding wonder at the gates of Macchu Picchu showed him the beauty of the great treks of the world. But it was on the trails closer to home - the Appalachian Trail in America and the Cumbria Way in England - that he found the quiet glory of the road less traveled.
That road has taken him to many different corners of the world. His first experiences with independent travel took place in the Central American rain forest. Since then he has seen the Great Wall, Iguaçu, Giza and Angkor. But what he values most was his experiences meeting people along the way.
With Sharikay by his side, he looks forward to the next new experience and the next new adventure.
