After a failed attempt to enter an English PhD program, Eric fancied himself a playwright for a time. With music as his lifelong passion, he is an avid vinyl collector who works in corporate communications by day and moonlights as the sole proprietor of the music blog Bucket Full of Nails by night. Never straying far from his academic roots, his cats (living and deceased) are named after Faulkner characters. Follow Eric on Twitter where he discusses music, beer and Phillies baseball.
