About Me

I’m Erik. I’m an aspiring designer from Seattle, Washington. Right now, I’m a Sourcing Recruiter at Facebook, supporting Product Design Leadership. I can also speak some Norwegian (Snakker du norsk?).

I’ve spent my whole life designing things to some capacity. When I was a toddler, it was LEGO structures; a teenager, it was Photoshop & iMovie; today, it’s Sketch & web design.

It’s been an interesting journey so far. After dropping out of college to pursue a music career, I found my way back into college and received a Masters Degree in Educational Leadership & Policy. Since then, I have worked for two of the largest tech companies in the world.

It’s hard to tell what the common theme of my life is, but as I zoom out, I realized I always incorporated creativity into my work. No matter the context, no matter the subject matter, I find a way to make something more creative and interactive. It makes experiences more interesting, engaging, and meaningful to whoever I share them with. Which is why I want to be a designer, and why design matters to me.

As a musician I enjoyed the opportunity to perform and be on stage, which I try doing via improv comedy when I have time nowadays. Making people smile and laugh is important to me. Through design, I want to leverage my ability to make people smile and enjoy what they are doing to get the most out of their experiences.

Something fun: Above is a cartoon I illustrated and produced for an entry-level Norwegian class. I owe most of my Norwegian speaking abilities to making this video. 🇳🇴 Skål!
