Eric Virk lives in Bakersfield, CA, and is a Kern County native, originally from Lamont, CA. He is always excited to come to work, and can't wait for Monday to come around during the weekend! Eric's hobbies include playing the guitar, travel, and wildlife conservation. In January 2011, Eric enrolled in F.I.E.L.D.'s Solar Technology program, at the suggestion of a friend. "Before I showed up on the first day, I didn't want to go, because it was a thirty minute drive from my home to the class in Arvin, CA. After I found out what it was about, I was hooked, and I did my best throughout the course. It payed off, because now I work at SolarFIELD. I'm still blown away daily, by how fun and rewarding my job is. I've always been passionate about preserving the environment, and now I do it professionally, while simultaneously giving back the community I came from, alongside a great team of talented people. I love it."
