Eric grew up in Walnut, California, a small city in the suburbs of Los Angeles, and has lived in Tucson for over 20 years. A graduate of the University of Arizona, Eric holds a degree in finance with an emphasis in real estate. He has worked in the commercial real estate industry for his entire professional career. Eric first discovered Waldorf education when his children participated in a Waldorf day-care operated by his sister-in-law, Ursula Ramos. The loving philosophy resonated with his family and both his son and daughter later moved to the Tucson Waldorf School. He appreciates the TWS community and its intention to develop the child mentally, physically and spiritually in a loving and nurturing environment. He believes this makes the Tucson Waldorf School a very special place. In his spare time he enjoys building, fixing and improving things around the house, spending time with his wife, Camille and their children, camping, and anything related to cars.
