Eric began his career canoeing people through the jungle. He spent 10 years working in ecotourism across Costa Rica, Mexico and Brazil in operations and as a consultant.

He started researching the topic in 2001 and won a student research award at Cornell University for his paper titled “Carbon Offsetting, Trading, and Sequestration and their Relation to Travel & Tourism.” Fast forward 10 years later, as a research fellow at Cornell, Eric authored the study “Developing a Sustainability Measurement Framework for Hotels: Toward an Industry-wide Reporting Structure” and was selected as the technical consultant to facilitate the development of the methodology for the Hotel Carbon Measurement Initiative.
Throughout his career Eric has consulted globally for hotel properties; hotel companies; REITs; hospitality vendors; tourism operators, attractions and complexes; cruise lines; the UNWTO, WTTC, and AHLA; event organizers; and tourism destination organizations. Eric earned a Bachelor of Science degree from the Cornell University School of Hotel Administration and a Master of Science degree in Tourism & Travel Management from New York University.
Eric is a member of the UFI Committee on Sustainable Development, the International Standards Working Group of the GSTC, and on the judging panel of the HICAP Sustainable Hotel Awards.
