Ethan C. Yake is the Senior Director of Partnerships at All Hands and Hearts, a volunteer-powered disaster response organization.  He supports development/operations by cultivating partnerships around the globe and with regular frequent site visits.

For most of the last decade, Ethan managed large event logistics for President Barack Obama – from his campaign in Iowa through his inauguration and finally at the White House. In service of those same ideals, he founded Mohawk + Hudson Films in 2016 — producing small, character driven stories made in America.

Ethan loves a well-balanced IPA. He holds degrees from Kenyon College and Brown University and lives in Milwaukee.
