Eric Palson is an architect who runs a design firm in  New Hampshire. Though both of his parents were artists and art teachers, Palson followed a more technical path studying architecture at MIT and Berkeley. He taught drawing and design at Berkeley, at the University of Wisconsin and at the Boston Architectural Center before going into practice.
 
In Cambridge, Massachusetts, Palson spent six years working with Benjamin Thompson Associates on many far-flung projects before relocating to New Hampshire with his young family in the early nineties. He is now president of Sheerr McCrystal Palson Architecture in Concord, NH.
