Eric Stevens

ericbioJust about any guy who grew up in a blue collar town, like Buffalo NY, wants to open a bar when he is older. But, few get to have that dream come true and fewer still get to keep their house in the process.

This fairytale story began after 13 years of successfully raising funds to house the homeless and help disadvantaged children in Indianapolis, send local kids to college with the ACCESS program here in Hampton Roads and finally help uninsured sick kids at CHKD.

Hanging up his “raising money for other people” hat, Eric left that career and came on board at Bardo full-time giving the place 33.3% more zen.

Unfortunately, Eric now feels he has Karma to spare, so he spends his days torturing vendors and correcting staff. While some claim that he is really a nice guy once you get to know him, most beg to differ.

Eric joined Karl in 2002. Eric handles the money, taxes, corporate information, and other behind the scenes business stuff that helps Bardo and Still operate smoothly.

He also has a famous saying that starts with, “Why don’t we ______” The “we” in that sentence normally refers to everyone but Eric. As Karl says, when Eric says “we” he really means “weeeee,” as everyone else will have to execute his plan.

As the working half of Prime Eats, Inc, Eric also focuses on new business development and outside consulting jobs.
