Erik Bloomquist is a two-time New England Emmy® Award winner (Outstanding Director and Outstanding Writer), eight-time nominee, and Top 200 Director on HBO’s Project Greenlight. His nationally syndicated drama series, The Cobblestone Corridor is the winner of three New England Emmy® Awards and recipient of nine nominations. His critically acclaimed short films have played internationally. Erik’s award winning short, She Came from the Woods, is currently on the festival circuit while his debut feature film, Long Lost, is in post production.

Erik has also directed prolific musicals and plays at regional theaters and educational institutions across the country. In addition to teaching masterclasses throughout the northeast, Erik has served as adjunct faculty at Trinity College, Artist-in-Residence at Avon Old Farms School, and Visiting Artist at Miss Porter’s School.
