Get to know Eric more with this Q&A:


Q1: What did you know about Anniston Museums and Gardens prior to employment?

I have been coming to the Anniston Museums and Gardens since I was in elementary school and still love to come to this day.


Q2: What are you looking forward to most about working here?

My passion is conservation. I love teaching people about the world around us and I look forward to sharing my knowledge to as many people as I can while here.


Q3: Favorite animal and why?

My favorite animal is the slimy salamander (Plethodon glutinosus). Some of my favorite memories I have are of me and my dad in our backyard catching these salamanders.


Q4: What is your favorite exhibit at AMNH and why? Berman Museum?

My favorite exhibit of the AMNH is the Birds of Americas. Birds have always interested me in how they can be so many different sizes, shapes, and colors and this exhibit demonstrates it perfectly. The Berman Museum’s newest exhibit of Danger, Deception, and Disguise is now my favorite exhibit there. Spy movies have been a staple of my childhood and seeing all the spy gear is so cool to me.
