Eric believes interior architecture is an opportunity to engage with the very surfaces that build the social and collaborative heart of architecture. He is particularly talented at creating a synthesis between design elements, from the big picture to the smallest detail. Eric works to create a conversation between these elements that often result in added layers of meaning—creating intrinsic and extrinsic value and thus elevating the overall design. He encourages the team to think about the humanistic side of design, for example, considering how comfortable and functional a chair is or how a space can be oriented in such a way as to encourage collaboration. He gets excited about technology and is always looking to explore adaptive and predictive design tools. In his spare time, he reads design blogs and listens to podcasts to find out the latest in the design world, to maintain a more global perspective, and to keep big ideas in circulation while working out the nuts and bolts of a design.
Eric primarily works on commercial and healthcare interiors at Inventure and is an associate member of the American Institute of Architects (AIA). Eric graduated summa cum laude from the University of Kentucky where he received his Bachelor of Architecture degree. He went on to receive his Master of Architecture degree from Rice University.
