Why do you want to be on ATJ? I wanna do the most exciting things that are out there. If these are dangerous jobs, I want to try them.
Why do you think you can win ATJ? Physically, I don't stop. I'm not looking to look good; I'm looking to get the job done. We'll see who's there at the end, but I can tell you this, I'll always be there.
What are your strengths? I can sell anything I believe in.
Weaknesses? A bit of a wild card.
What are your best qualities? Curiosity, always being a team player.
Worst? I'm loud and a little aggressive. I'm sometimes a little glib and cavalier and can just jump right in there before everything has been thought through.
What are your biggest fears? Heights, large animals.
Other interesting characteristics: Independent thinker, sold motivational seminars in the 70s to help a commune purchase a catamaran.
Meet Eric, watch now!
