I’m Eric and I’m the person who started Skid Row in my garage basement way back in 1999. I’ve been a car nut since I was born and earned a Master’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering at SUNY Buffalo. I’m the guy who designs all Skid Row products and who answers your technical/install questions. I also do all the boring business management stuff that you don’t think about when you decide to start a business. I love being out in the shop working on anything with four wheels. I enjoy doing repair, restoration, and/or customization work on all sorts of rides. Over the years I’ve worked on many classics from MG, Porsche, VW, Ford, Chrysler, and GM including Corvettes, Thunderbirds, and a wide variety of Jeep’s from 1947 through today.

When I’m not here at our shop you might find me wandering around a swap meet, a junkyard, or even a car show. As you’d expect, I’ve driven my Jeep on trails all over our beautiful country including trails in Maine, Massachusetts, New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, Texas, Colorado, And Utah. Of course, I do non-car related stuff, too. When we’re not in the middle of a pandemic, I love to go swing and blues dancing. It’s good exercise and lots of fun. There have always been lots of furry creatures in my life, especially cats...which is one of the reasons we’ve got two office cats, OC and Sadie. While I wouldn’t call myself an “outdoorsman”, I do go mountain biking or kayaking when I can and have done a lot of hiking and camping over the years.

My daily driver is a pearl ivory 1996 Ford Explorer Limited and, believe it or not, I’ve got FOUR of them. Ya never know when you’re gonna need a color-matching spare part! Okay...so maybe I’m a bit of a hoarder. I also drive a 2018 Jeep JLU Rubicon in Firecracker Red, with a manual transmission.
