Our Mission

Meet the Founders

Ethan Kramer

Ethan is a native of Frederick, Maryland who loves outdoor sports – mountain biking, surfing, and skiing. It is clear that global pollution has been growing exponentially, becoming increasingly noticeable in every corner of the world. A graduate of Rochester Institute of Technology who holds an MS in Entrepreneurship and Innovative Ventures, he is determined to recycle as much of the waste stream as possible and save our only and one planet.

Myles Goldberg

Myles is the guy who brings the marketing groove to reFort. Taking risks, challenges, and adventures never ceases to excite him. Born in Cincinnati, OH (Bengals!), raised in Frederick MD, and currently living in Washington D.C., he aims to make a difference across the nation. Myles is determined to make a social impact by increasing the recycling stream and reducing landfill mass. It’s a HUGE challenge, but it is possible!

Sean Maiwald


Sean is a seventh generation Californian, but has lived in DC for six years now. He enjoys scuba diving in his free time and hates seeing trash and other polluted things in the water, which was one of his inspirations behind reFort. Sean graduated from Gallaudet with Ethan and Myles, and will be graduating from The George Washington University in May with a Master’s in Public Policy.
