Portrait of Eric
It was fun doing the interview with Eric because as soon as I pressed “record” on my phone, Eric started talking and I didn’t have to ask any questions. After he was done explaining about himself, I asked questions anyway. That’s how it goes.
In this portrait, Eric is sitting in his Model S | Tesla which was his “pride and joy.” Previously, he was driving a Chevy Silverado, and spent about $300.00 US a month in gas. In 2011, he bought a Nissan LEAF® Electric Car and it changed his life in many ways, though he never expected. In 2013, his wife started commuting and he purchased an electric motorcycle.
Finally, they installed solar on their roof, and soon they were an all electric family. Regarding not paying to drive, he said, “it’s an amazing way to get around…I highly recommend everyone to convert to this form of transportation.”
Eric lived in Tujunga, California, USA. He moved to California from New Jersey when he was 19 years old because he wanted to live in a warmer environment; he did not like snow. When he arrived in California, he immediately went into the trucking business in Burbank.
Prior to retirement, Eric was a truck driver for the City of Burbank. Post retirement, he volunteered at the The Burbank Animal Shelter and also at Exotic Feline Breeding Compound in Rosamond, California, USA.
