First things first. Give me a beat.
Hi, I'm Eric L Silver.
I am a audio producer / writer / editor.
I love cardigans, big headphones, and being ten minutes early.
And I believe in storytelling.
I've spent my entire life devouring stories. I stayed up all night as a kid tearing through books: classics, sci-fi, comics, anything I could get my hands on. I huddled under my blankets in the bedroom I shared with my brother and balanced my iPod on my chest, letting the tiny glow illuminate the book I could not pull myself away from.
Through college, I saw my core friend group sort itself out as a television show, each of us embodying and destroying archetypes. As our relationships grew, we amassed an oral tradition all our own, a record we referred back to in moments of celebration, strife, and reflection.
I found poetry and spoken word, podcasts and audio diaries, and the live storytelling that crackles both on a massive stage or a trail in the Canadian wilderness.
With every retelling, a story starts up like a piston engine with every retelling.
As it whirs, it builds and builds, retaining energy, keeping itself going.
I have the skills to harness and unleash a narrative in the medium it deserves.
Audio, prose, poetry, tweet, mixtape, message in a bottle, smoke signals - I can write it.
I believe in the story. Let me believe in yours.
