Quite the Renaissance man, Erick came to Smokingpipes fresh off an eight-year stint as a ballet accompanist, after having lived everywhere from Washington to Florida. A talented pianist and composer, music will always hold an important place in his life, but for now he's decided to turn his attention to another one of his passions: pipes. As an integral member of our restoration team, Erick works alongside Romeo to restore estate pipes back to near their original condition. In his free time, he also enjoys baking, not watching TV, drinking gourmet coffee, and spending time at the beach.
