Eric Umble. What can I say...I met him back in 2010 when he transferred to MSM for his undergrad. He stuck around for 2 more years for a Masters there to study with Anthony McGill (can't get better than that). He worked for the Center for Musical Entrepreneurship at MSM after graduating (with Casey Molino Dunn) and has since become a DJ (spinning electronic music at cool late night parties in Brooklyn and beyond) and an indispensable freelancer in numerous projects across the city.
He now works full time in development for The Knights, pulling 60-hour weeks most of the time. He was lucky enough to score an artist's studio in downtown Brooklyn a few years ago, and I am proud to call him my colleague and friend.
Welcome aboard, Eric!
