About Evan the professional

I am passionate about creating websites and using new technology to improve the way we communicate. I can proudly report that I love what I do, and it shows in the quality of my work.

I was born, raised and still reside in San Diego, where my interest in the web began as a hobby in high school. The crown jewel of my accomplishments during that time was a website called “SoCal Skateboarding,” where I posted photos and stories about my friends and our wild skating adventures. By the time I graduated in 2000, I knew that I wanted to pursue web design as a career.

I went on to enroll in college at UC San Diego, where I double-majored in both Interdisciplinary Computing & the Arts and History. My classes focused more on art theory than practical web design and development so I took it upon myself to study these things on my own.

Thanks to all of my hard work, I was able to land a job doing web design straight out of college in 2004, and I have been working in the industry ever since.

I now spend my days working directly with clients to create accessible, web-standards-compliant, search-engine-optimized, mobile-device-friendly, and generally awesome websites. I also take the time to talk with my clients, to learn and understand their goals, and to use my experience to help turn those goals into reality.

About Evan the not-so-professional

EvanWebsites and the internet dominate my life, but I’m just as happy as anyone (or probably more-so) to get away from the computer. When I’m not basking in the warm glow of my monitor I enjoy being outdoors, spending time with my wife, Daniella, and working on projects around our new house in La Mesa.

As I alluded to earlier I used to spend a lot of time skateboarding, but these days it’s become all about the bicycles. At one point I think I had around 7 or 8 of them in my garage, but at my wife’s request I’ve downsized to 5.  I enjoy browsing for them on craigslist, restoring them, tuning them up, and sometimes I actually ride them too!

Otocinclus CatfishI also enjoy traveling, playing hockey with the guys on my beer-league team, playing guitar and writing (not-so-good) songs, and going to Padres games. I’m a bit of a fish nerd, and I have a couple of tropical fish to keep me company while I work in my home-office.

Thanks for taking the time to visit my website! If there’s something else you’re dying to know about me, just ask.
