Eric has 25 years of project management and business development experience. His diverse forays have included mixed income housing, documentary films, and renewable energy and energy efficiency project development.
In addition to project and business development expertise, Eric has Series 82 and 63 FINRA securities licenses and has worked at the intersection of finance and climate mitigation focusing on raising funds for climate-tech startups, clean energy deployment funds, and other impact investment opportunities. One area of interest for Eric is helping nonprofits participate in solar and energy-efficiency development by bringing unique funding solutions to the table. Eric’s initial pivot into clean energy was driven by his experience making a documentary film deep in West Virginia coal country that focused on the negative health consequences and destructive community and climate impacts of resource extraction. After the documentary’s premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, Eric recognized that the time for addressing climate change was running short and shifted into renewable energy project development and fundraising for impact investments.
Eric spends most of his free time working to transform a fenced-off, 19th-century clay pit in an environmental justice community into an accessible, natural reservation, and environmental education resource in partnership with Mass Audubon.
