Erin’s unique background makes her a 21st century Renaissance woman. A trained visual artist who began drawing, painting, and sculpting in childhood, her creative endeavors grew to encompass music, writing, acting, science, and technology. Erin’s artwork has been shown at the renowned Sotheby’s gallery in New York City and at the National Arts Club. She is the recipient of multiple Scholastic Gold and Silver Medals for her art and creative writing. Her first feature film role was in Peace After Marriage, which won Best Narrative at Tribeca: All Access (Tribeca Film Festival) in 2010.
At age 13, Erin played the clarinet in a performance at Carnegie Hall. Her love of electronic dance music soon took over, a passion cultivated growing up in the New York club scene amid the influence of local house and techno legends. She quickly replaced her clarinet with turntables and crates of vinyl. In 1999 she bought her first set of Technics 1200s and began DJing. Erin’s dance music mixes and original releases can be found here.
Born and raised in New York City, Erin’s passion for sports and wellness runs deep. She is a former U.S. Junior Olympic-certified swim coach, personal trainer, and fitness competitor. She holds a Plant-Based Nutrition Certificate from the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies. Erin also practices the Japanese healing art of reiki, and is Level 2 Reiki certified. She is a Founding Team Member of 4-CT, a philanthropic organization formed to address the COVID-19 crisis working with the Office of the Governor of the state of Connecticut to provide direct aid to community organizations. Erin spent six years working in finance before making the transition from Wall Street to careers in media and biotechnology. She worked at two top-tier investment banks, as well as with founder Ray Dalio as part of his Core Management Team at Bridgewater Associates, the world’s largest hedge fund.
Her passion for animal welfare, wildlife conservation, and climate change led Erin to be appointed as Advisory Board member of Animal Save Movement, a global animal rights organization that positions itself against all forms of oppression with a compassionate and love-based approach. She is a volunteer at her local Humane Society shelter, embraces political activism and is passionate about reproductive healthcare rights and food system change.
