Born and raised in Meriden, CT. Ethan spent most of his time in school, attending Wilcox Technical High School, and the rest of his time working different jobs. Whether it was the paper route boy, a trainer at baseball camp, or a Certified Nurses Aide, he was raised by his parents to always spend the time he wasn’t in school working hard to earn his own.

Ethan took that same work ethic to the University of Connecticut, Storrs, in the year 2014. He started out washing dishes at the dining hall he ate at on campus for work, as he realized medical school might not be the route for him these next 6-8 years, he needed to find a new path. He applied and accepted a college internship that taught the basics of Business, from prospecting/marketing all the way to project management. He quickly learned about the home improvement industry and built trust with homeowners around the state of Connecticut. He was able to become a top performer in his first two years, earning his way to the President’s Club in the company back-to-back years. He then moved on to a management role, leading his teams to success as well.
