Eric knows that for an organization to help build strong teams, it must first have a strong team itself. This mindset has been shaped by nearly 15 years with WinShape Teams, where he played in integral part in overseeing and developing programming staff. He now serves as Country Director of Kenya for Blue Sky Global, located in Nairobi, Kenya. Eric’s pull toward leadership was cultivated in college and his early post-grad years, with experiences ranging from National Outdoor Leadership School in New Zealand to positions as ropes course facilitator and backcountry guide for both WinShape Teams and Higher Ground USA. Eric also holds multiple organizational and outdoor leadership certifications, which have allowed him to successfully facilitate interactive team experiences over the years.

When he’s not leading teams at work or at church, Eric is probably enjoying some down time with his wife, Anna Lauren, and three children, Gabriel, Selah, and Landon. He’s been to more than 40 countries and aspires to visit all seven continents.
