An award winning composer and pianist, Eric is skilled in all genres from classical to funk to R&B to rock to pretty much anything. \r\n\r\nEric has also dabbled in film and film scoring, providing the score and sound for "Green No. 1 in D Minor," an animation by Jake Friedman (www.jakefriedman.net), which took first prize at the 2004 ASIFA East festival. He is also a member of the film making duo that brought you "Po Mo To Hu" (www.myspace.com/pomotohu). He continues to compose and perform in many diverse styles.
