Ethan Bütt – Webmaster

As webmaster, Ethan Bütt is responsible for the design and maintenance of the Initialize website (it’s actually the site you are on right now). He updates all website-related materials and graphics with the latest information. It is true that website maintenance is an all-consuming and intensive activity that takes up every second of every day for Ethan; however, in those extremely rare moments when he is not updating the website, Ethan could be seen listening to music, programming on his MacBook, and drinking a Starbucks hot chocolate. If you would like to contact him, the best way to do so would most likely be his email: ethanbutt309@gmail.com.
