    Eric B

    Eric serves as a host/producer of the Capital Stories podcast in his role overseeing Communications at Capital Church. At Capital, he’s also passionate about helping people feel welcome, invited, and at home in Capital’s community. Eric spent a few years of his early career in Higher Education helping graduates find their place in the world, and encouraging folks to discover their potential.

    Three fun facts: Eric is near the half-way point in his lifetime goal of visiting each of the U.S. National Parks; has a favorite mammal (the Malayan tapir) and desert plant (the ocotillo); and despite adamant denials to his wife, is probably actually a cat person.
