I hail from New York City, have two beautiful children and now live in San Antonio, TX. I am also an enthusiastic New York “Football” Giants fan — Go, Big Blue! — and have been an on-again/off-again comic book collector for as long as I can remember.

I spent 16 years in the music business — 10 of which were spent in the employ of Atlantic Records — where I met some incredible people and forged lifelong relationships. To this day, I love discovering and sharing new music and welcome anyone who would like to join me on that journey.

My current day job consists of being one of the founding principals, along with Jeanette Fernandez and Steven Darby, of Heavy Heavy, a creative studio in San Antonio. Though I am passionate and opinionated about my profession, I try not to take it, or myself, too seriously.

In my spare time I play Destiny, a cooperative video game, with a clan I founded in 2016. Though a little hobby right now, I hope to soon dabble in streaming gameplay once I get around to building a streaming PC.

If you would like to chop it up, my preferred method of contact is short, but sweet, emails to erik.l.ford at gmail.com. But, if brevity is really your thing, shoot me those 140 characters @okayerik.
