Eric was born and raised in Naperville, and lives near McDonald Farm. He attended Naperville North High School and the University of Illinois in Champaign, graduating with a bachelors in finance.

He was a shareholder of Green Earth Harvest and volunteered many mornings at the farm before work. He got to know the farm crew, the organization, and the farm itself. He’s excited to work on this land, with these people, as a part of The Conservation Foundation.
