Hi, I'm Ethan. I'm currently studying Photojournalism in the Corcoran School of Art and Design at The George Washington University. I came here from the suburbs of Philadelphia, though for a good part of my life I lived in Florida.
A little bit about me... Most of the time you can find me either working on a current project or planning for the next one. When I’m not working, I’m probably out exploring the world (I love to travel), rowing (for fun not necessarily competition), or sleeping (I highly value my sleep). Most importantly, I love what I do.

"GW's only financially and editorially independent student run newspaper"
For Volume 113 (September 2016 - March 2017), I worked as a 'starter' Hatchet Photographer mainly covering sports, both games and news, as well as general coverage for the paper. I was then hired as a contributing photo editor for Volume 114 (March 2017 - March 2018) focusing on editing, assigning out, and continuing to cover sports related stories. Some general assignments I've covered have ranged from covering local meetings affecting the Foggy Bottom/DC Metro areas to following the introduction and activities of GW's newest president Thomas LeBlanc.

Travel for Teens
After spending three summers abroad with TFT, I started working in the office as an intern/customer service rep. I've also helped work on projects such as editing photos and videos for marketing materials, system cross-checks and reporting, t-shirt management, and SEO optimization. I have also worked with them during the summer as a counselor, helping lead trips throughout Europe.

freelance photo / video / web
In high school, I was the school's unofficial 'school photographer' mainly because of yearbook and everything I covered and shared for them. I also made the end-of-the-year videos for the basketball and baseball teams.
Outside of school, I am an avid documentary storyteller, capturing everything the world around me has to offer either through the medium of photo or video.
Along with my own personal website, I have worked with other friends and companies to help build and publish portfolio and business websites.

I worked for both my middle and high school's yearbooks. Making pages, managing ads, designing themes, and organizing events throughout the years. I was also in charge of our entire online presence.

Progression through the three stages of our school's available television/video classes. Senior year, I was apart of the advanced class: making videos, entering contests, and editing.

TEDxStoga is our Conestoga's TEDx version of the well-known talks. I was in charge of production, recording, and publishing each event's series of talks. I also managed all social media aspects that went into filming and sharing them such as making posters and video end slates.
