|Alternative names||Etho's Lab, Etho Slab, Ethers|
Etho is a Canadian Let's Play commentator and an active member of the MindCrack server. He was invited to join in November 2011 by Guude, at the same time as Docm77, after competing in the second Race for the Wool. Etho is part of Team Canada and OOGE.
Etho has been generally reticent regarding personal details about his life outside of YouTube. A popular inquiry regards his formal profession. Etho noted that viewers had regularly claimed him to be a teacher, an IT professional or even a member of NASA, but revealed that he works in horticulture as part of a family owned greenhouse business. The comments of this video were later blocked due to a certain user that traced this business and released images of Etho and his location. He does not have any post-secondary education, graduating from high school with 35 of his credits coming from work experience. In June 2012, Etho began producing YouTube content full time, having left the greenhouse business to do so. He called this his "dream job" and joins other members of the MindCrack community who have all openly shared that they currently do - or soon plan to - make producing YouTube content their full-time source of income.
Etho is also known for his peculiar pronunciation of common words such as "lava" and "pollen". Etho runs his channel in a "family-friendly" way by not using any swear words and doing his best to censor swear words said in his presence.
Etho had been interviewed by the German Minecraft Pros. Etho has a popular Minecraft survival single-player series titled "Etho Plays Minecraft." The series, originally called "Let's Play Minecraft", continues to be produced. He is noted for his skill in redstone and the complicated contraptions that prove them. He is notable for creating practical (or extremely complicated) Redstone contraptions, such as his mob sorting system which can separate creepers, zombies, and skeletons with fairly great accuracy and Wilson, his Tamagotchi-like "pet", fully redstone controlled.

Etho has participated in MindCrack Ultra Hardcore since Season 3, except Season 7 and 12. Etho was the winner of Season 8, having killed six other players. In season 9 he joined up with DOOKE (Docm77, BdoubleO100 and kurtmac) his team from season 4.
Etho's main base of operations on the Season 4 server is at EthoCorp Laboratories, which doubles as a potion shop. EthoCorp Laboratories constitutes his first build on the reset server. He also started work on a Horse Timer that can reliably and accurately determine how fast a horse can run and how high a horse can jump calculated with snow slabs. His most recent undertaking is the "Mountain Base" or known as Ethopia which Etho has since flooded and built a tree farm on. Etho also collaborated with BdoubleO on the nether hub which is now finished. Etho also created the Death Games based off his Death Games on the Season 3 with Nebris, Arkas, and MC Gamer. He built this early on in the season, and has had to continuously fix it and improve it due to increased amount of players. This game has a sword in the chest with a name of a Mindcracker. If this person is online, the attacker is required to use a preset of armor and weapons. Players can choose to use potions, and are often times taken from Etho's potion shop at spawn. If the one of the players is killed, the other player gets a diamond. If a Mindcracker sees his name in the chest they can "clear" their name from the chest by pressing a button. In addition to EthoCorp and The Death Games, Etho also built Underground Sound. It allows players to create their own tunes using a system of note blocks.
On the Season 3 server, many components of Etho's base were underground. His mob system was the most prominent structure on the surface. The nearby island has his free-range Cow farm and Sugar Cane farm. Underneath the mob system is his Mancave, which was smoothed out by Zisteau in a prank. In the cave, Etho had the largest Slime farm in the server. In the Nether, Etho had built a Dual Blaze Farm with a prominent structure surrounding it, simulating a hanging platform. Water source blocks were used as decoration within the structure. Outside the structure, there were five water source blocks spread throughout the ceiling of the Nether. Etho is part of Team Canada, an alliance formed by PauseUnpause to prank others as a group. His collaborated with Docm to create the server's first Wither Skeleton spawning pad. Etho went on to create his new base and storage room underground in a jungle some what near Zisteau's place. He planned for the new base to contain having a lush jungle underground with a hanging storage room with a beacon and mob tower farms, although he didn't finish that idea before the map reset.
Etho's recent endeavors on the modded Feed the Beast server include Etho Corp, of which he is the founder and self-proclaimed chief executive officer. Under the banner of Etho Corp, Etho has built his base on the server, which includes floating islands of various purposes (tree farming and storage, among others). The Honeycomb Labs, the basis for much of his bee research on the server, is situated nearby the main components of his base. After the server reset, Etho initially decided to power his operations entirely on biomass but later deviated from this plan. He has placed an emphasis on Railcraft because he thinks carts flying through the air looks cool. Etho's base on the server is within the vicinity of AnderZEL, with whom he first left the spawn village because of lag issues. Recently, Docm77 moved nearby.
