Eric Cain grew up in Sacramento, earned a degree in Anthropology from U.C. Santa Cruz and moved to Oregon in 1972.
He first came to OPB as a volunteer in the Radio News department, reporting stories and reading a daily newscast. In 1987, he took a job in Television Production and has worked at OPB ever since. Eric has produced segments and programs for just about every show with "Oregon" in the title, including Oregon Field Guide, Oregon Art Beat, The Oregon Story and now Oregon Experience.
He's received a number of awards for his work at OPB, including two regional Emmys for "Best Director" and four more for "Best Documentary."
He's also studied commercial art and music. He has a keen interest in electric guitars, and has built (and taken apart and put back together) quite a few.
