His years of hard work paid off when he became the Chief Financial Officer for Snow Partners. Being a native of New Jersey, he found his love of the New York Giants and New York Mets and became an avid fan for all his life. Erik enjoyed many things in life which included wrestling, Jiu Jitsu, and traveling around the world. At the end of the day what mattered most was being with his friends and family.
