Originally from upstate New York, where he grew up on a fruit farm, Evan’s work is motivated by a deep interest in the interaction of technology, design, and landscape. He has contributed to numerous MVVA projects including the design development and construction documentation of Brooklyn Bridge Park Pier 6 and the development of the Waller Creek Framework Plan and its associated projects.
Evan received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in sculpture and art history from SUNY Potsdam. He earned a Master of Landscape Architecture from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where he was a Kluesing Fellow, and upon graduating he was honored as a University Olmsted Scholar and received an ASLA Honor Award. Evan was also co-founder of Urbana Land Arts, a collective of artists and designers who integrate cultural and environmental stewardship with public art.
He joined MVVA in 2012 as a summer intern, contributing to the competition-winning Waller Creek proposal for Austin, TX and became a full-time employee in 2013.
