Raised in Temple Hills, Maryland, just outside of Washington, D.C, a young Eric Archer frequently visited the Smithsonian museums. He fondly remembers standing underneath an iconic (now defunct) whale exhibit at the Museum of Natural History. It left quite an impression. He's now a Marine Biologist based in San Diego where he researches whale family genetics and taxonomy. He also loved visiting the Nation Air and Space Museum. Yep, he's also a pilot. And a 3rd Degree Black Belt. And plays bass. A few of his other hobbies include sailing, kayaking, scuba diving, woodworking, camping and hiking. He also drops a few jokes here and there, so maybe comedian is his next opportunity to test the limits of mastery.

Favorite song:  Woman in Chains by Tears for Fears.

Favorite words are an elaborated version of this quote from Lao Tzu's Tao Te Ching: "Water is fluid, soft and yielding. But water will wear away rock, which is rigid and cannot yield. As a rule, whatever is fluid, soft and yielding will overcome whatever is rigid and hard. This is another paradox: what is soft is strong.”
