Description Edit | History

A lifetime tabletop gamer, Ethan has been in the industry since 2001, when he joined WizKids Games. There he worked on just about every game WizKids ever launched (and many they didn't), learning the trade under his mentor Jordan Weisman. Ethan was particularly involved in the company's Constructible Strategy Game initiative, leading the model design efforts on the Pirates of the Spanish Main series, the Rocketmen: Axis of Evil CSG, and later the Star Wars PocketModel TCG - a game he also designed. Even after Jordan's departure from the company, Ethan remained a core element of the WizKids game design team until the company's closure and sale in late 2008.

After WizKids, Ethan and a small group of company veterans (once again led by Jordan Weisman) founded Wells Expeditions where he served as Director of Product Development. Nine furiously busy months later their mass action miniatures game Arcane Legions launched at GenCon Indy 2009.

Now a successful video game designer (he currently works at Microsoft), Ethan has continued to design board games as a freelancer, creating the Star Trek: Fleet Captains game for WizKids/NECA, and Immortals for Queen Games with his friend and long-time collaborator Mike Elliott.
