Erik runs Deutsche Bank's Corporate Banking and Securities team in Birmingham. He has been in the he UK for 3 years, having previously worked for the Bank in Mumbai India, Jacksonville Florida, and New York. His interest in the arts began when he was quite young--one of his earliest memories is of spending time in his grandfather's gallery in Los Angeles--and was developed over time by members of his family that include a composer, an illustrator, an author, and a landscape designer. His own collection includes works from local artists he came to know during his travels, as well as paintings and sculpture inherited from the gallery.
