About me

“Evann? Curious. In the best of ways. He’s the teammate that insists we ask what we’re doing and why. When it’s not clear how to execute, Evann explores and experiments. It’s this kind of curiosity that fuels creative teams.”

Ashley Wells, Former VP of UX at NBC News

“If you need someone to make you smile, Evann’s your guy. He’s always ready with a joke and he loves to make people laugh.

At work, he shines when he’s given a chance to be creative. He’s always eager to help and, as his coworker, I knew I could count on him when I needed guidance.”

Ashley Costanzo, UX Designer at Nordstrom

“Evann is one of the more infectious individuals that I have had the pleasure of meeting in my lifetime, and his work and output rivals his personality.”

Personal

I’m originally from Chapel Hill, North Carolina, and I now live in Seattle. I play basketball and soccer recreationally, and like to stay active in general because exercise is my anti-depressant. I recently became a certified Schwinn® Cycling Instructor, too… fancy, huh?

I cheer passionately for athletic teams from the University of North Carolina – specifically men’s basketball and women’s soccer – and I’ve been trying with limited success to get better at playing the guitar for a few years.

I enjoy doing most anything with my awesome wife, the one and only Ashley Miller, but some of my favorites among our shared activities are travel, snowboarding and karaoke. Here’s a video I put together of us doing all three at once!

Community

I’ve been a volunteer since 2007 with the Service Board, a Seattle nonprofit that mentors teens to conquer personal and cultural challenges through public service and outdoor adventure. I served as a youth mentor for three years in tSB’s program of social justice, service-based community stewardship and snowboarding instruction. In 2013, I was honored to receive the Service Board’s Golden Boot Award for outstanding service.

I also served for three years as a member of the Board of Directors for Youth Media Institute, a Seattle nonprofit focused on empowering youth to tell their personal stories through training in digital media.

Additionally, I was a member of the 2012 class of Leadership Tomorrow, an organization dedicated to enhancing personal and civic leadership skills through a nine-month program centered around community stewardship.
