Erica began performing on professional stages at the age of 12. Her circus career began by accident when she was spotted on stage at the Academy of Music in 2007 by the Give and Take Jugglers. Erica still performs with the Give and Take from time to time as a wire walker, aerialist, obscure puppeteer, and juggler. She has been a tightwire instructor at the Philadelphia School of Circus Arts since its inception, and is the founder and director of Charm City Movement Arts in Baltimore. Erica graduated cum laude from SUNY Brockport with a BS in Dance and Political Science, and received the Political Science Outstanding Student Award as well as the All American Scholar Award.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
