Zero Gravity Marketing has risen above the competition to become a top digital marketing firm in Connecticut, and we credit it to our unique, diverse team. We appreciate every player, and we know that without him or her, we wouldn’t be the successful marketing firm we are today.
With this in mind, we have launched an Employee Spotlight initiative. Our hope is that, as you learn more about each of the talented individuals at our marketing firm, you will gain further insight into why we are so great together.
Today, we are thrilled to introduce Ethan Strang, Account Executive. We have asked him a few questions to provide an insider’s look as to what makes Ethan tick. Enjoy!
Ethan Strang, Account Executive
Where are you from?
I am from a small town in Fairfield County Connecticut called Redding. Lots of trees.
How did you choose this career path?
Mad Men is one heck of a show! All joking aside the AMC drama did bring my attention to the field, but it was my first few internships where I began to fall in love with the rollercoaster experience that is advertising.
What do you like most about your job?
I really enjoy meeting new people and solving problems. It really can be fun linking the creative and business worlds together.
What is your favorite part of being a member of the ZGM team?
There is great momentum in the agency, it feels like you are at the center of the action and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
What is the strangest job you’ve ever had?
Nothing too out of the ordinary but I did work on a horse farm for a while.
What is your favorite quote?
“I never lose. I either win or I learn.” Nelson Mandela
Do you have any pets?
I may get a fish soon, but I also plan on having dogs in the future. Maybe even a cat who knows.
Name one thing on your bucket list.
Visit each continent – twice.
What would you consider to be your greatest accomplishment?
Buying my first brand new car!
Do you have any hobbies outside of work?
I am a very avid photographer outside of work. I minored in the field in college and continue to work with film as much as I can these days. I am also a pretty big gearhead, and have been restoring a 1967 Mustang in my spare time.
What’s your favorite food? Least favorite food?
Honestly I like all foods!
Pick three words to describe yourself.
Adventurous, Organized, Practical.
Impossible question! Tom Petty, Royal Blood, and Neck Deep are top of my playlists these days however.
If you were a Crayola crayon, what color would you be?
I would definitely be blue, since I love everything about lakes and oceans and water in general.
You’re about to perform in a karaoke bar. What song do you pick?
“You Give Love a Bad Name” by Bon Jovi. Classic karaoke song.
If you could live in a TV show, book, or movie, which one would you pick?
I think I would have to pick That 70’s Show since everyone says I look like Eric Forman.
If you could hang out with anyone for a day, alive or dead, who would it be and why?
John Lennon for sure. I think he would have changed the world if he was still around.
