Eric has been with DePaul Housing since May 2011, when he began as a facilities project coordinator. In 2014, he became the Facilities Project Manager and seven years later was promoted to Assistant Director of Facilities & Technology. Eric oversees the facilities management for the residence halls in Lincoln Park as well as technology within those buildings and for our department. Some of his responsibilities include managing the annual residence hall improvement project process, working with our partners in Facility Operations, and leading large-scale projects each summer. In addition to his role as an assistant director, he leads the Green Team, a sustainability-focused EDGE​ team hosted by the department. 

Eric received his bachelor's degree in meteorology in 2003, and a master of science in education in 2007, both from Northern Illinois University. He began his housing career as a graduate assistant in residential facilities at Northern Illinois University, where he became coordinator of residential facilities from 2004 to 2008. With a desire to widen his skill set, he journeyed to Loyola University Chicago, where he held the title of Resident Director from 2008 to 2011. Following his passion for facilities work, Eric joined the staff at DePaul and is enjoying everything about the position.  

In addition to his work at DePaul, he is also actively involved with GLACUHO, the Great Lakes Association of College and University Housing Officers, where he has held several leadership positions on the board of directors, most recently serving as president of GLACUHO in 2018-2019. He has also won several awards through the association, including the Outstanding Innovation in Facilities Award in 2019, and Outstanding Project Award in 2020. He also served as faculty for the 2021 GLACUHO Professional Development Institute, a 2-day institute for entry-level housing and residence life professionals looking to advance in the field.
