Hi. I'm Evan.
Who?

    Boston => SF

    After much planning, my girlfriend and I decided to walk to what would become our new home in the Bay Area. So far, we have made it to Omaha.

    Berkeley, CA

    I balance my time between client work and finding time to work on writing, open source, and other personal projects.

Select Client Projects

Here are some of my favorite things that I've worked on independently.









Personal Projects

Here are some of my favorite things that I've worked on independently.

Code

Much of my best work revolves around writing code. It's far from the only way that I like execute an idea, but I've yet to find a method that is so highly leverageable. Not only that, but it's the source of my livelihood and a good deal of fun too.

The Site Experience

I'm a fan of using the right technologies for the right job. Every client has a unique take on UX, and I'm happy working in Rails, Node, Meteor and a variety of other technologies to acheive a scalable product.

Any Stage

I love turning new ideas into businesses or businesses into bigger businesses. But I occasionally like to wrestle with a legacy code base as well. As a matter of fact, I even created an open source project as a tribute to legacy code.

Open Source

I have a wide range of projects on my GitHub profile, including a JavaScript testing library, an English translation of a Japanese game engine, and a Mechanical Turk wrapper that led to a cordial yet concerned call from Amazon.
