We would like to introduce you to Eric Black – a production & quality teammate here at Press-Seal.
Eric has been with the company since 2010 and works in our customs and quality departments.
Every one of our teammates has interests outside of work and that is the work/life balance we embrace here at Press-Seal. In his spare time, Eric takes care of his two sons and also is an actor.
It really forces you to learn how to think on your feet because you have to learn how to improvise if someone forgets their lines
Eric started acting in 3rd grade in a program called Odyssey of the Mind that consisted of creative exercises with teammates and then the exercise of creating skits and setting up props.
I found the skit writing to be where I excelled at that age
The hardest part about acting is the time it takes to rehearse and then actually perform the shows. Eric said he used to perform in 3-4 shows a year before life as a father and husband. Now he might be able to find enough time for one show every couple of years.
