Eric brings a background in diversified livestock management and environmental education to his work promoting the resilience of Vermont farms & farmers in the face of a changing climate.  Since leaving his hometown of New York City in 2013, Eric has either been studying, working on, or managing a variety of diversified & pasture-based livestock operations. In 2018, Eric received his B.A. in Sustainable Agriculture & Environmental Education from Warren Wilson College in Western North Carolina. After three years of farming in the southern Appalachian mountains (predominantly managing a grass-based dairy farm for a local creamery), Eric moved back north in 2021 to join the robust Vermont agricultural community he has always admired from afar. Eric then spent two seasons serving as the Farm Director at Maple Wind Farm, in Richmond, VT, before joining the NOFA-VT team in 2024 as a Climate Resilience Specialist. When not out chasing livestock across pastures, you can most often find Eric spending time in the kitchen with those he holds dear, or attempting to read a book over his 120lb Pyrenees lap dog, Finn.
