Eric’s world of blogging all started with his Steelers-focused twitter account that he started in January of 2016, which he originally started in order to tweet about football without relentlessly annoying his friends. Though he had no intentions of writing when the account was conceived, as well as no experience, within a month he set up a Blogger website and Steelers Grind was born.

One day he stumbled upon a website titled Steel City Underground. He saw a “contribute” option and decided to send in some of his work in order to network. From that point on, Eric contributed to SCU while maintaining his own website. It wasn’t until August of 2016 he joined SCU full-time. He now sits at the right hand of founder Joe Kuzma’s throne with the title of Managing Editor, whatever that means. 

Eric graduated from Duquesne University in May of 2017 and now works in Downtown Pittsburgh being an adult. Eric also enjoys running, movies, and bar trivia.
