Eric deployed three times as a Marine and on his final tour, an experience in Afghanistan, was wounded after stepping on an IED. Eric suffered the amputation of his right leg, a life-changing opportunity that began his next journey.

Throughout his journey, Eric realized that the challenges and adversity he was up against and the techniques he used to reach the finish line could be used against the challenges we all entertain. When not training, racing and delivering inspiration, Eric can be found with his wife Rachel and three children in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

School AssemblyReviewed on October 15, 2020From Mesick, MI

We are so grateful Eric was able to make time for our school. We are a completely virtual school and Eric was a natural at presenting online. He touched our hearts and motivated our students & staff to keep push through no matter what life hands you. Eric was a pleasure to communicate with prior to the event and we were so impressed with his assistant Adam. I highly recommend Eric as a motivational speaker.
