Eric Hansen

Eric Hansen

Admin Assistant

Eric Hansen has drilled all over the Pacific Northwest over the last 40 years. Including Alaska, and in Canada. Every project is unique. What makes this industry, this career, so enjoyable and captivating is the opportunity to travel and meet different people at each site.

Every person has an extraordinary story; from the geologist who can code and create apps, to the landowner who remembers a time when Alaska was free and wild, and yet to be part of the United States. In his free time, Eric is an avid boating and sailing enthusiast. Challenges such as Race to Alaska are right up his alley. Eric enjoys thinking outside the box and creating quirky, yet functional metal art.
