Eric

Studied acting at The American Academy of Dramatic Arts (Or as one of my teachers once said, The American Academy of Dramatic gestures) in New York, NY. Did a few plays in the local area, putting to work all those dramatic gestures, and wowing audiences in the North East.

Moved to California, where I studied and performed Improv comedy for 8 years. Got to perform with a lot of talented, funny, smart, comedic actors and writers.

Decided to go back to school, to study New Media; producing, editing video for the Internet (The title New Media was just a facade. It was really film school.) When I was done, I actually landed jobs in the field I studied in! Unlike acting where...I don't want to go there right now.

Even before I started working there, The New Beverly Cinema was my favorite theater to see old movies. I'd like to share a mystery regarding my employment at the New Beverly. No one knows exactly when I started there. Not even myself. I think it was sometime around 2009, or maybe 2010.
