While attending Belmont University as a music business major he found a passion for concert lighting with the help of one of his instructors and good friends, Chris Lisle. Touring for several years as a Lighting Director, Erik and Chris formed the Touring Career Workshop as a way to give back to the touring industry and provide resources to touring professionals. Erik is also working to create a motivational siminar geared toward young adults called The Parker Experience, encouraging folks to follow their dreams, keep their passions at their heart and leaving a positive legacy.
