Ethan New Headshot Tall.jpg

I am a staff writer for the online film journal Bright Wall/Dark Room.

I am the writer/director of the 2018 independent feature film West of Her, hailed by critics as “enchanting” and “mesmerizingly beautiful.”

My first full-length stage play, Why Are You Nowhere?, was the recipient of the Playwright’s Award for Staged Reading at the Midtown International Theatre Festival, and had its premiere production at Southeastern Louisiana University in 2017. In 2018, my play Hot Dog Christmas was commissioned by Boston's SpeakEasy Stage company for their new works initiative.

A graduate of the MFA program at the University of North Carolina in Wilmington, I live in the Boston area with my wife, Caitlin, and our daughter, Nora.
