Hey, I'm Eric


As a child, I’d lay in bed with dreams of some day becoming Cleveland’s premier wedding DJ when I grew up. Ok, that’s not true at all but it would totally make sense if you knew how often I’d bring my Fisher-Price cassette player (with attached microphone) over to friends’ houses to play them music I thought they would like. Or the hours I’d spend in high school meticulously crafting mix CDs for friends, without being asked, because I knew they would love it. Or the countless iPod playlists I’d put together for parties in college, which would even include a Black Eyed Peas song or two, not because I liked it but because I knew that’s what the drunken masses wanted to hear. The truth is, I’ve always had a passion for making people happy through music and since I never learned to play an instrument and a person’s wedding day should be one of the happiest days of their lives, there really isn’t another “job” I can imagine being this much fun. For me, it doesn’t get much better than seeing people react to the first few notes of a song they love while they’re surrounded by a hundred of their closest friends and family… Oh and cheese, also, I love cheese.

I think everyone can agree that reading and writing aren’t nearly as easy as listening and talking, so, I started a podcast.
