My self-summary
My name is Ethan and I'm a 28-year-old management consultant/raver. If Lady Gaga and Jack Donaghy had a child, it'd be me. I'm equal parts: academic, jester, philosopher, fashinisto, policy-wonk, partier, armchair-astronomer, pragmatist, realist, optimist, and pessimist. At work, I'm the silliest serious person in the room that nobody should take seriously.

My sense of humor is best captured by my three favorite sitcoms: 30 Rock, Community, and Archer.

Oh, and I'm an ENTP for what it's worth.

I also hate summarizing myself, so just ask and get to know me!
What I’m doing with my life
I work for a top-tier multinational consulting firm's supply chain practice; my colleagues and I are like the Dr. Houses of business: we apply the scientific method to problems, diagnosing and fixing what companies can't on their own.

But, I've only been in the job since July 2015 - it was the culmination of my MBA degree from TCU in Fort Worth, TX. Before that, I spent about 3 years as a central office admin in a charter district in San Antonio. I was a project manager and handled programs from federal funding to employee wellness to grants, & etc.

Honestly, I love my job and love that every day I face new challenges that push me to continuously learn and grow.
I’m really good at
Making people laugh, talking, listening, writing, gloving (see my pictures), math, teaching & learning, debating & public speaking, being ridiculous, working, having fun, and living.
The first things people usually notice about me
About me, personally: That I'm intelligent, funny, and younger than they'd expect.

And physically: That I have dark, mysterious eyes that Esquire Magazine once called, "Piercing" in their annual "Best Eyes of Business" Issue (credit: 30 Rock); that I have hair as full and thick as a Bolshevik's (credit: Archer); and that I wear vests, jewel tones, ties, paisley, and - in general - all fashionable clothing well. :P

But, seriously? I don't know: probably that I do dress like a bit of a dandy because I sooo love fashion.

Food: Things made from real food, not processed bullocks. Oh, and Scotch. Scotchy scotch scotch!
Six things I could never do without
Love, friends, music, laughter, knowledge, nature.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The future, life, the universe, and other silly things.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out at a party or just hanging out with some close friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I want to be Jack Donaghy when I grow up.
You should message me if enjoy good conversation.

And if you watch The Young Turks and #feltthebern!
The two of us
