Eric grew up in the small town of Valdez, Alaska. He first moved to Utah to attend BYU. While there he met his wife, Provo local Elizabeth DeWitt, and they decided to stay and raise their family. Eric earned a degree in Mechatronics Technologies from UVU. After working a few years in industry, Eric is now a full-time stay at home parent to their two young boys.
Eric is currently serving as the Vice Chair for Provo’s North Park neighborhood. He has helped organize service projects, promoted local non-profit groups, and advocated for his neighborhood on issues that will have an impact on his neighborhood. Last fall Eric and the other central neighborhoods sponsored a debate for Provo Mayor and City Council candidates. Eric is also currently a project coordinator for the Provo Bicycle Committee.
As a Legislator, Eric will be committed to transparent, honest leadership. He believes that our leaders need to address our state’s challenges head on, even when they are hard. He believes that we can find solutions through collaboration and not through further extreme politicization. Our state employs thousands of dedicated teachers, law enforcement, and other civil servants who are experts in their fields, and Eric will work to give them the support they need to work for Utahns effectively. Eric believes it is crucial that our policies are results-oriented and data-driven, and not motivated by radical politics.
In his free time Eric enjoys fishing, bird watching and fantasy sports.
