He received a BFA in film from the Conservatory of Theatre Arts and Film at Purchase College and an MFA in animation from the Savannah College of Art and Design. He has interned at Blue Sky Studios and Adult Swim. He has taught film and animation in New Mexico and Utah.

Growing up in the Adirondack Mountains provided many defining adventures that have shaped a prevalent theme throughout his work involving the idea of home and how it relates to defining our place in an ever-changing landscape. His characters are explorers — traversing imagined worlds in search of themselves.

A major source of inspiration derives from his experiences as a trail crew leader teaching outdoor leadership and trail conservation to at-risk youth in Montana and the Adirondacks. When not teaching or making films, Evan can be found exploring the wilderness with his wife and dog.
