He began his career at HP as a Technical Marketing Engineer Intern where he discovered his passion for working directly with customers to test new features. Erik took the passion he discovered from his internship and in his current role to learn more about innovative technologies, such as 3D Printing at HP, and learning more about transformative practices for customer success. Erik was nominated and selected to represent HP in Leadership Boise, and he is excited to work with other passionate and inspiring professionals, activists, and leaders in the Boise community.
An Arizona native, Erik moved to Boise in 2007 to pursue his Bachelor’s in Chemistry and play tennis at Boise State University.

He discovered his love for floating the Boise River, snowboarding at Bogus Basin, and running along the Boise Greenbelt while at Boise State.
Inspired by his mother, a software engineer, Erik is passionate about breaking down barriers for underrepresented groups and promoting diversity and inclusion in the workplace and the community.
