Eric was born in Fairfax, Virginia and completed undergrad at UT Austin before serving in the Peace Corps in the Dominican Republic and Haiti (phone number hidden)). He then attended grad school at Tulane University, where he completed an MA and PhD in Latin American Studies. He moved to Austin with his adorable pit mix Dife (meaning "fire" in Haitian Kreyol) to work in the Academic Affairs Dept at International Studies Abroad (ISA - (website hidden)), a study abroad provider headquartered in Austin.
While working at ISA in Austin, Eric met Erin, a native of San Antonio with an MA in Spanish from Texas State University. Erin now teaches Spanish to downtown Austinites for Freestyle Language Center ((website hidden)) and helps people organize their homes and offices with Simply Spacial ((website hidden)).
With a shared love of Austin and its international culture and laid back yet active lifestyle, we are happy to host you.
Eric's brother owns a studio airbnb rental unit in New Orleans. Please contact me so we can coordinate your trip to both NOLA, and Austin; two genuinely eclectic, diverse and beautiful cities.
