My name is Ethan D. Smith. Why the middle initial everywhere? Well, I have a very common name. It seemed to me that once I got to college and there were 8 other Ethan Smiths in the system, I needed a way to distinguish myself. And Ethan D. Smith has a nice ring to it, so here we are.
I’m 22 years old, and I have a Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering from NC State University (Class of 2015). I am currently pursuing my Ph. D. in Chemical Engineering at Virginia Tech. I don’t have a research area yet, but I’ll update this page when I do.
What can you expect from this website? Well, I mainly want it to be a hub for my creativity. I enjoy making short videos as a hobby, so those will live here, and should I make any major breakthroughs in the scientific world over the next 5 years, those will belong here too. I mainly wanted to revamp my blog since I’ve had a web presence for quite a while, and it seemed like the summer between graduating from NC State and starting at Virginia Tech was a great time to redesign my web page and prepare for lots of new things.
I enjoy the outdoors, so you’ll probably find pictures of mountains and my hammock strung up in various places, so you can look forward to those also.
Finally, before I turn you loose to go watch my videos and browse the site, I feel it’s important to mention that I’m a Christ follower. I believe that Jesus saves, he died for everyone, and I want to strive to be more like Him each day.
If you’d like to know more about anything or everything that’s here, drop me a line over at the Contact page. I check my email frequently, so I’ll be in touch. You may also follow me on Twitter @ethandsmith if you’re into that sort of thing. Happy browsing!
