Born and raised in historic Quito in Ecuador, Eric started exploring the world with his parents before he had celebrated his first birthday, and grew to love nature, diverse cultures and endless exploration. After visiting the Galápagos Islands at age 15, Eric studied to become a marine biologist, then become a certified dive master to enable him to explore unchartered underwater worlds.
He soon discovered the tourism industry, first working as a dive guide before moving to the Galápagos Islands to work as a Cruise Director. Working in the luxury adventure travel industry has taken Eric all over the globe, and facilitated personal and professional growth, helping him better understand the need for sustainability and eco-friendly practices in the travel industry. Eric’s passion for endless exploration and sustainability makes him a perfect fit for Aurora Expeditions.
In his free time, you can usually find Eric in the kitchen, creating “delicious chaos” without the aid of a menu.
