Eric Epstein, President. Prior to founding Global Impact Productions in 2001, Eric held a number of key marketing and logistics positions with the Avon Breast Cancer 3-Day in New York, the Boston-New York AIDS Ride and the Texas AIDS Ride. He taught science in Brooklyn for eight years before obtaining his M.B.A. in Marketing from the Stern School of Business at New York University. An avid runner, Eric has completed five New York City marathons. On weekends, this Delaware native can also be found with his seat on the bike or his hands in the garden.

Blake Strasser, Coach. Blake joined Global Impact in 2003 to share her passion for cycling – and for supporting great causes. She was previously a staff member on the Northeast AIDS Ride, and has been a rider (and fundraiser) herself in 15 AIDS rides and suicide-prevention walks, so she knows a thing or two about getting past the fear of training and raising money. Her previous life in theater means she can also fake it when necessary. Blake’s claim to fame came early: At age 4, she sat on Mae West’s lap and, in her only fit of stage fright, threw up on her. Originally from Colorado, Blake knows a thing or two about the great outdoors, and will proudly share her Ironman tattoo to prove it. Her two mastiff mixes, Bailey and Moose, are happy to join in the fun.
