Known to his friends as “E” and “@e_man” on Twitter, Erik became fascinated with social media specifically the tool Twitter. He was was of the earliest adopters of the tool in 2006 as user number 11,000. Now with the site over the million mark, Erik has had some doors of opportunity open for him that would never had if it were not for social media.
Along with meeting players online, Erik has formed relationships with many key people who share the same passion as him about the New York Football Jets.
Erik is a season ticket holder and hardly ever misses a game. At every home game, he can be seen in Parking Lot L7 tail gating with his father, Lou and the rest of the L7 Crew.
Erik attended the Hall of Fame induction ceremony for Curtis Martin, hung out and interviewed Fireman Ed, thas met Dennis Byrd at the AFC Championship game in 2011 where he vlogged about his trip, met Kerry Rhodes through twitter and on the field in 2009, formed working relationships with Steiner Sports and guest posts on a weekly basis on TheJetsBlog.com. Erik also occasionally vlogs about the Jets on YouTube and during the season has a weekly podcast called the “Jets Twit Podcast”.
