The son of an opera singer, Ethan moved frequently within the United Stated during his childhood. At the age of eight, his family moved to Germany and finally Austria. After completing his formal education in Vienna along with two years of Theatrical Studies at the University of Vienna, Ethan returned to the US to complete his BA in directing in Utah.
Ethan’s recognition as an editor and storyteller began with his work on the documentary “Truth and Treason,” the story of one of the youngest German Resistance Groups in Hamburg, Germany. In November 2003, Ethan was hired as an Associate Editor and After Effects artist for Sony's first animated feature ‘Open Season.’ The following year, Ethan worked as the main film editor for two feature films, ‘Believe’ and ‘Everything You Want’ for ABC Family.
Moving into the documentary genre, Ethan directed several docs for PBS affiliate stations throughout Utah, including ‘The Romney Code: The Life and Ethics of George W. Romney,’ which aired in 2008 and won a Regional Emmy in the Historical Documentary category. In "The Soul of Kalaupapa: voices of exile," Ethan worked over 2 years to tell the story of the last Hansen’s Disease (leprosy) patients on the island of Moloka'i in Hawai'i. His most recent project “From the Heart” captures the story of the rise of innovative Healthcare coming from India and the Cayman islands. Two additional documentaries are scheduled for production in 2015.
A world traveler, Ethan currently resides in Vienna, Austria with his wife Mirjam and three kids.
