A director of technical assistance from Vermillion, South Dakota...
On preparing for his Masters appearance, Eric says, "I played Jeopardy! online a few times. Oddly enough, I had a hard time getting anyone to stick around for an entire game." That's really not so surprising when you know that no less an authority than Alex Trebek himself dubbed the 1989 Teen Tournament winner "Powerhouse."

Now a Director of Technical Assistance with the Alzheimer's Association in Sioux City, Iowa, Eric's game plan is as succinct ("Strike hard. Strike quick.") as his own self-penned bio: "Sometimes he played well. Sometimes he played badly. But he never played boring."
"He won both the 1989 Teen Tournament and the 1998 Teen Reunion Tournament. He's now a director of technical assistance for the Alzheimer's Association. From Vermillion, South Dakota..."
