About Eric:

Eric was interested in social justice and fighting the oppression that we see all around us, however subtle sometimes. He was known as the advocate for the underdog. He continually reminded his colleagues to seriously consider the vulnerable, the disadvantaged, and the quiet people who so often end up being negatively impacted by decision-making. Eric also had a particular interest in LGBT issues. Eric was keenly interested in stakeholder engagement, an area of work he hoped to pursue after graduation. He is remembered fondly and always by his classmates and the Presidio Community.
