About Ethan

I live in L.A., by way of Detriot then Queens, NY.

BA, Philosophy, UCLA
JD, Loyola University School of Law

Member of YPO

I founded my company when I was 17 years old. We had over 70 locations nationwide, over 1,000 people employed at peak, and operated many hundreds of trucks. The company often provided unskilled workers with skills enabling them to earn well-paying positions. Numerous innovations in the early years set new industry standards for customer service, employee satisfaction, and safety and regulatory compliance. Over 45 years the company created well in excess over 100,000 jobs and moved millions of people.

My father joined the Marines at age 13. He was also in the Army and then the Navy, all by the age of 17. After the Navy he travelled internationally as an Able Bodied Seaman on a commercial ship.
His application to be a policeman was rejected as he was 1/2” too short. He continued working in other quasi-military roles, as his life reflected his philosophy: one of his core beliefs was that the Country must maintain a strong national defense. He was an advocate for those who serve in the military. In his later years he spent much of his time studying military history, and developed an expertise in it. He also wrote about some of his experiences. One of his interesting works was about the colorful language of the lower economic classes of southerners drafted into the service for WWII, published in Maledicta, an academic journal of bad language.
