I believe in Africa's global importance and potential. That is why I have spent twelve years studying and working in different corners of the continent. My success in deriving growth opportunities through development, people innovation, design thinking, strategy and management consulting have fueled my deep desire to work with Africa's movers and shakers.

As Founding Director of the Museum of African Design in Johannesburg (2013), and co-Founder of the US-based fashion distributor African Lookbook (2012) I have had success as an entrepreneur. As Acting COO for the Constitution Hill Trust (2018) I am responsible for implementing strategic transformation within a complex network of State-Owned Enterprises and private philanthropists.

In July 2018 I received my MBA in the inaugural class of the African Leadership University School of Business in Kigali, Rwanda. "ALUSB" is the latest school in the African Leadership Group, which started with the African Leadership University in Johannesburg. Before opening the Museum of African Design, I completed a Liberal Arts Degree at Columbia University in New York City.

Ethan won his first championship title at age fourteen in 2012. It had been his first time traveling outside Alaska. Seeing a city like Seattle for the first time and competing with other talented skaters really motivated him to try something different with his routine. Mr. Maslov trusted the young teen and helped him practice at night. Ethan took home 2nd place with a double Axel, double toe-loop combo. However, due to his unconventional music choice, “Long River” by Aurora Falls, the judges only gave him an 8.9 score.

Undeterred, Ethan continued to bring his talent and unique vision to the ice. During his performance at the West Coast Championships in 2014, he gracefully executed a triple Salchow followed by a flying combination spin. Choreographed to Nayantara Kani’s “Vibravado”, Ethan’s performance landed him 1st place with a score of 9.7.

At the 2016 U.S.A. Championships Ethan took home first place by performing a quad lutz-triple toe loop combination. He ended the performance on a level 4 spin with a +3 grade of execution. By setting traditional choreography against Gravity’s rock-infused cover of Nocturne, Ethan earned a score of 9.9.

Currently, Ethan is working on the quadruple Axel, a move that has yet to be successfully implemented by any skater. So far he is 3.85 turns in.
