Eric has always strived to bridge the worlds of classical and rock music.  His early professional days were spent working in the recording studios of Tokyo, followed by a stint as Concertmaster for Jimmy Page & Robert Plant's Unledded tour, which inspired him to create The Section Quartet, building the quartet into an in-demand studio ensemble for rock, pop, jazz and rap artists.  

Along the way he learned the craft of string arranging, contributing his sensibility to albums by a wide range of artists such as Christina Aguilera, Sam Phillips, Band of Horses, Ryan Adams, Sean Lennon, A Perfect Circle, Cassandra Wilson, Snow Patrol, Neil Diamond and Fiona Apple, just to name a few.  Producers Glyn Johns, Linda Perry, Nick Launay, Jacknife Lee and Jon Brion often call on Eric to arrange, orchestrate and contract ensembles, ranging in size from soloist to orchestra, for their productions.

Eric has published several rock string quartet arrangements of songs by Radiohead, Coldplay and Elvis Presley, with plans to publish more titles on the horizon.  

Eric also co-hosts the Live from High Fidelity podcast about vinyl records with his pal Tom DeSavia of Songs Music.  He spends many an hour and paycheck at record stores in Los Angeles and whenever (and wherever) on the road.
