San Francisco 49er team captain and starting center, Eric Heitmann, is now an award-nominated orchestral composer. He began writing cinematic scores as a teenager, but put his music career on hold, as he pursued the opportunity to play professional football.
Eric composes and produces music in the epic, cinematic, and ambient genres. His compositions are, by design, ultra melodic and follow a hybrid orchestral style similar to film composers, Hans Zimmer and James Horner.
He now resides just outside Austin TX, with his wife Emily, and two young daughters, both aspiring athletes and artists.
