About Me

Born in India and looked after by a Tibetan nanny, it was only a matter of time before Ethan found his calling in high mountain landscapes. With climbing roots sewn between craggy outcrops in Thailand and granite monoliths in Yosemite, in recent years he has focused on alpinism, which has taken him to the Himalaya, Andes, Saint Elias, and Alaska Range, and kept him busy at home in the Canadian Rockies.. His writing has been featured in alpine journals and magazines, and his experiences shared through presentations and slideshows, often with an emphasis on trying to connect powerful experiences in the vertical world to other aspects of the human condition. Ethan also connects to the landscapes that inspire him through his work researching changes to snow and vegetation dynamics using satellite imagery.
