Ethan Brown is 14 years old, and a ninth grader at Phillips Academy Andover in Andover, Massachusetts.

After watching a TED video of Dr. Arthur Benjamin, Ethan was inspired to learn the art of mental mathematics. He read Dr. Benjamin's book: The Secrets of Mental Math, and then proceeded to learn and practice the various techniques. He began with his fifth grade school variety show, and joined Dr. Benjamin on stage one month later at the World Science Festival in New York City.

Since then, Ethan has performed at The Amazing Meeting in Las Vegas, Gathering 4 Gardner in Atlanta, the Chicago Toy and Game Fair in Chicago, and various schools throughout the Northeast. He has also spoken about mending mathematics education in America at three TEDx events around the world.

Ethan loves showing people how much fun math is and that it isn't limited to what is taught in school.
