Ethan Massey currently lives in South City with his husband, Kurtis, and their two dogs, Bailey and Bella. He is an avid reader and when he is not relaxing with a good book, you will find him cheering on St. Louis CITY SC. They love to get out and spend time with friends whether that’s exploring the city or just hanging out.

Ethan has a B.S. from Southern Illinois University of Edwardsville in Applied Communications Studies with an emphasis in Public Relations. Currently, he is pursuing my M.A. in Applied Communications Studies with an emphasis in Organizational Communication. He has recently done research studies on mental health stressors in a work culture and their effect on employees as well as factors that lead to effective decision-making in an organization. Communication is what he loves to do in both work and in life.
