Eric Johnsen is a hot new recruit to the staff of the Optimist, joining for his senior year. When he's not busy cracking open school scandals or otherwise carrying on as an intrepid journalist, Eric enjoys tearing it up on the tennis court, painting tapestries of sound with the piano, and "wasting his life playing video games" (as his parents put it). He hopes to attend Yale, Williams, Columbia or Harvard, and is motivated solely by a desire to make Mrs. Mills (Sensei Mills, as he affectionately calls her) proud.
