Eric holds a PhD in History from American University in Washington, DC.  For over a decade, he has provided historical, intellectual and creative context for documentaries, educational initiatives and public history projects. 

A deeply critical thinker, Eric believes that the only way to effectively solve a complex problem is to trace it to its roots.  Since 2003, he has been instrumental in planning and executing a wide variety of nationally and internationally recognized projects including American University’s Nuclear Studies Institute, University of Baltimore’s “Baltimore ’68: Riots and Rebirth” conference and community history project, and the Baltimore National Heritage Area’s “Hidden History” digital QR code project.  Eric is the Coordinator of Educational Outreach and Curriculum Development for Oliver Stone’s “Untold History of the United States,” a twelve-part documentary series and companion book that recently aired on Showtime and Sky Atlantic.  A sub-specialist in urban history, he has taught at University of Baltimore since 2007, where he has designed and implemented fourteen unique history courses, advised students and worked to expand the University’s public history footprint.
