Eric Squires
Eric's beginnings with Smokingpipes.com started in 2009 with data entry and quality control, where his appreciation for pipes grew and eventually merged with his creative writing talent. He has since written and edited vast tracts of content for both our website and newsletters, and helped show our younger copywriters the ropes when they've joined us. Eric is another member of our New Jersey faction (he "attended the same high school Lee Van Cleef dropped out of"), and is a fan of Latakia, Semois, strong cigars, and silence. In his own words, "Animals usually adore me, women with any sense of humor giggle school-girlishly at me, and men I grew up with still want to know what I could have possibly been thinking."
