About Me

If Eric looks familiar, it may be because you've seen him on TV or at the theater, as he has acted in several plays and performed in a number of commercials and industrial films. Eric has also deejayed and/or emcee'd 500+ events in central Texas, where he is one of the more sought-after entertainers of this type. Eric lives in Austin, TX, having moved there in 1983 from Iowa, where he spent his childhood. He hooked up with the improv comedy troupe "ComedySportz" in 1986 and performed with and eventually managed them for 6 years. Eric signed on with Penguin Entertainment in 1997 and is not only their busiest deejay but warehouse manager as well. Eric feels his strong-suit is voice work and, as you can tell from listening to his demos, his voice is extremely versatile, ranging from the consumate announcer-type to the "guy next door". With a plethora of character voices in his repertoire, Eric can fill just about any voice-over need! Eric graduated from Buena Vista University in 1980 with a B.A. in Physical Education. He was a middle school coach and teacher for 14 years. In addition to his acting and deejaying endeavors, Eric currently teaches part-time at a local Sylvan Learning Center.
