Originally from Chicago, Erik primarily grew up in Southern California and attended Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, where he obtained his Bachelor of Science in Quantitative Economics and his minor in Statistics.
Upon graduation, he moved to San Francisco and joined Polaris Pacific, a condominium brokerage and marketing company focusing on West Coast urban markets. As a research manager, Erik has advised on all scales of residential development in the pre-construction stage, ranging from in-fill developments to master-planned communities, while providing revenue forecasts, sub-market analysis, and efficient land use and product mix.
Erik is extremely excited to join the MRED+D program and hopes to deepen his development knowledge, particularly surrounding smart, sustainable designs that create better environments for both stakeholders and communities.
Outside of work, Erik is passionate about soccer, yoga, and motorcycle racing.
