After fulfilling some of his acting goals, he decided it was time to explore other areas of the entertainment industry. During his tenure as an Assistant Casting Director at Boston Casting, he recruited talent for commercials, industrials, theater productions and independent films.
In January of 1997, Eric
moved to Los Angeles to pursue acting and writing and subsequently wrote
his first feature screenplay David’s Walls. After completing several
drafts, he became determined to bring his creation to life. Shortly
thereafter, he became involved in production working on features,
commercials and music videos. Combining his experiences in production
and casting, he produced a five-minute experimental music video for David’s
viewers a brief symbolic vision of the story with abstract glimpses of
the main characters. David’s Walls screened in several
festivals around the country, including the Northampton Film Festival
and the Long Beach International Film Festival garnering positive
reviews along the way.
Eric's most important accomplishment is Psychic Glitter, an onstage charity event production responsible for raising $1978.20 for The Trevor Project honoring the memory of Lawrence King, a teenager shot and killed in school for his sexual orientation and gender expression. Eric wrote, produced, co-directed and even played a feature length lead role while spreading awareness for an unforgettable tragedy.
Recently, Eric briefly returned to his acting roots as Glen in the feature film Walk
A Mile In My Pradas starring Nathaniel Marston (One Life to Live), Dee Wallace (E.T.), Tom Arnold (Roseanne) Mike Starr (Goodfellas) and Bruce Vilanch (Hollywood Squares). During this production of Freak, Eric's directorial film debut entitled The Test premiered at The Marblehead Film Festival in Massachusetts.
