Born and raised in Columbus, OH, Eric relocated to sunny Los Angeles, California in February of 2013. For much of his life bicycling has been a way for him to explore the world around him. In 2011, his passion for cycling and helping others led him to join a cross-country bike ride that raised money to build homes for people living in poverty. After two years of riding and raising money for the Fuller Center for Housing, Eric was inspired to start OnePulse as a way to unite the work of charities through the power of biking. By building a global community of thinkers and action takers, Eric seeks to make the world a better place.
