Ethan still feels a deep connection to his Alaskan roots, but has also embraced his life in Colorado. He is a huge fan of the Broncos and Nuggets, as well as the CU Buffaloes, his undergraduate and law school alma mater. During his free time, you can usually find him skiing or biking in the mountains. However, he also enjoys simply getting outside and exploring the world with his dog. He has really embraced the growing craft beer market, and would be happy to chat your ear off about his favorite local brews after a long day of skiing or riding.
