Ethan is currently a graduate student at CU Denver pursuing his master’s in architecture, currently in his final year. He is originally from Virginia but has lived in a variety of locations along the east coast. Before attending CU Denver, he received a master’s in real estate development which has sparked his interest in adaptive reuse, historic renovation, and anything related to the process. There is a passion for problem solving within a community and their built environment, mostly this idea of transforming or adapting rather than developing. Ethan believes that all communities can be improved but it all begins with knowing their identity and what has impacted their growth thus far. He loves pushing boundaries and being innovative while also adhering to the reality that comes with it all, and how to balance the two.
