ERICEXPLORES seeks to stimulate, educate, and motivate, through weekly personal sharing via photography and storytelling. Life is about stories: some entertaining; some thought-provoking; some sad; sharing is what makes them powerful.
A photographer and artist with a passion for travel, food, and wine, Eric grew up exploring the beaches and woods around Seattle. His epicurious adventures began in 2002 on a trip to Italy, where he experienced wine paired perfectly with cuisine.
He holds an AA in Visual Communications with honors, has coached in Landmark Education’s Self Expression & Leadership Program, tutors in wine, and participates in several professional wine tasting groups.
He passed the Court of Master Sommeliers Certified Sommelier Exams in December, 2018 and is currently a local sommelier and food server.
