Musically, Erik devoured Beethoven, Brubeck, Haydn and Prokofiev in childhood and currently hungers for the sounds of Berg, Berlioz, Cage, Daft Punk and Led Zeppelin. He owes his musical preparedness to his teachers Miwako Watanabe, Henryk Kowalski, Franco Gulli and Alan deVeritch.

Erik can be hard to find when off-stage, hiking mountains or slicing submerged as a swimmer. When not wielding his 1970 Alfio Batelli viola crafted for Jan Hlinka, Erik employs a number of lenses to photograph life one frame at a time.
