About Erick

Erick was born in Port of Prince, Haiti. His parents used to travel a lot so he’s lived in different places throughout his childhood. Places like Brooklyn New York where he has several close relatives, Boston and Cambridge Massachusetts where he went to junior high. After Junior High, he went to Haiti for a couple of years and attended high schools there.

Throughout his years, Erick realized that he had great potential and lots of talent. He was tall, athletically built and he loved physical challenges. At a very young age, he began practicing martial arts and became a brown belt at Shotokan. Music runs in his family, so it’s no surprise that at age 7 his parents had sent him to a music class for children. At age 8 his mother thought him to play the guitar herself, a skill he still enjoys to this day. He also loved art, he painted, drew, sketched and also wrote poems in English, French and Haitian Creole.

On his 19th birthday, he traveled back to the United States to attend college, he spent some time in New York where he took a computer information technology class. During his stay there, he found an interest in the marine corps but kept it in the back of his mind. He went down to Springfield Massachusetts to continue his studies but during his attendance, he did some research on the military and decided to join the United States Navy.
