Erik enjoys meeting people from around the world and creating an office that not only reflects a welcoming spirit but finds innovative ways to meet the needs of our students!  As an alum of UCSB earning a degree in Anthropology, Erik found a passion for learning about global cultures both past and present which led him to participate in a month long archaeological field school in Belize. While he is a proud Gaucho, Erik is passionate about students exploring Santa Barbara beyond the borders of UCSB and is always happy to recommend activities in the area.  When not at OISS, you can find Erik frequenting local restaurants and the beautiful beaches of Santa Barbara with his husband and dog.
