Review Editor

Growing up in Ohio, Ethan began his love of the outdoors young; backpacking sections on the Appalachian Trail, and rock climbing in the Red River Gorge. In 2009, he moved to Prescott, where he earned a degree in Adventure Education from Prescott College. After working seasonally around the west for a few years in between semesters, Ethan took what was going to be a week-long trip to Zion National Park. Seven years later, he’s still there, working as a rock climbing and canyoneering guide.
