Hello, I’m Erik Skinner. I graduated from the University of Colorado Denver and Colorado Film School with a BFA in Writing and Directing for Theater, Film and Television in 2008.
My interests include television, film, literature, comic books, video games, the internet and…
In the Fall of 2000 I joined the Blue Knights Drum and Bugle Corps (from Denver, CO) playing the Soprano Bugle and performed with them through the 2003 season.
For the 2004 season I flew out to Concord, CA to join the Blue Devils Drum and Bugle Corps. This time I played the Mellophone. I spent 4 years performing as a Blue Devil including a tour of Europe, a world championship performance in Pasedena, CA and a trip to Japan. I have been working for the Blue Devils as tour assistant during every summer tour since aging out, including the undefeated 2009, 2010 and 2012 seasons.
After aging out in 2007 I then joined a local all-age corps, High Country Brass, at first playing Mellophone and later playing Soprano. I played Soprano with the corps in 2008 and 2011, visual instructor in 2011, brass instructor in 2013, and played Mellophone in 2013. In December 2013 I was appointed as HCB’s corps director for the 2014 season.
