Eric Larson

As the son of a Vietnam-era helicopter pilot, Eric became interested in military aviation at a young age. He studied Aerospace Engineering at San Diego State University while participating in the NROTC program but lacked the visual acuity to select pilot. Instead, Eric served eight years as a Surface Warfare Officer on a San Diego, California-based Destroyer and a Norfolk, Virginia-aircraft carrier holding such billets as Combat Information Center Officer, Anti-Submarine and Anti-Surface Warfare Officer, Naval Gunfire Support Liaison Officer, and Asst Weapons Officer. Eric is a self-taught freelance photographer and lives in Carlsbad, California where he is self-employed in the IT industry.
