​​​​Our Team

Eric Horwitz,  Founder / Head Chef

Eric founded LIFT Enrichment in 2010 because he wanted to help young kids develop their culinary skills so they could make healthy foods for friends and family for the rest of their lives.  He has worked with kids for over 15 years and enjoys their energy and enthusiasm for learning new things.  Eric studied abroad in Italy while at UCLA and discovered a passion for cooking.   In his free time, he volunteers with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Los Angeles as a mentor to a young kid.   He's also an Eagle Scout and likes to watch movies with his fiance, go on walks with his dog Emmet, travel, camp and go out to nice restaurants.   

Favorite Dish To Cook:  Italian Seafood Stew with Parmesan-Garlic Toast and Green Salad
