Erik Lopez is a connoisseur of art, music, culture, geneology, geneaolgy, history, economics, botany, LDS Symposiums, basketweaving, diving, beekeeping and Pilates. Erik has more enthusiasm and passion for life than a 16-year-old let loose in an Asian brothel, and he always makes time to shoot the shit and listen to people’s petty problems- even when he’s late for work. Erik has been writing for SLUG for almost eight months, and his combination of eclectic analogies and warped humor have earned him a gently budding, rabid fanbase. Erik recently beat out over 35 applicants, scoring the position as SLUG’s new Associate Editor. Damn Erik, you’re one badass, up-and-coming journalist.
