Eric's fascination with space dates back to 1963 when at age 8 he built a Mercury Capsule simulator out of a refrigerator box and flew along with Scott Carpenter on the last Mercury mission. He first saw Saturn through a telescope a few years later and was awestruck. Now Eric enjoys sharing views of the sky with visitors at a local park where he is an astronomy docent, and pursues a ham radio hobby by bouncing radio signals off the moon and meteor trails. After 20+ years in high-tech he went to law school and has opened his own law practice.
