Meet the staff: Eric Hildestad

Myself Who am I?

My name is Eric Hildestad; I was born in the Twin Cities suburb of White Bear Lake, Minnesota. I am a junior at UMD majoring in writing studies and minoring in communications. I am a sports enthusiastic and trivia master which is a blessing and curse (depending on which one of my parents you ask).


Lake Voice position?

Managing Editor.


What interests me?

Growing up I aspired to be a professional baseball or football player (depending on the season) unfortunately my parents did not pass down substantial athleticism so I’m stuck on the sidelines living out my fantasies through others.


Why Duluth?

I needed an escape from my suburban life and when my elder sister chose a university in close proximity to home I didn’t feel as though I wanted to experience what she experienced so I ran two and a half hours north and here I am.
