Evan grew up in Minneapolis, MN. He spent a lot of time canoeing, kayaking, exploring the woods, and riding horses as a camper and counselor at Camp Nathanael in Hinckley, MN. An avid reader who enjoyed learning about almost everything, he decided to study Social Studies Education at North Dakota State University. Choosing a career where he can combine a love of learning and working with young people is the best decision he ever made.
The beautiful landscape of the mountains drew Evan to Colorado, where he picked up skiing, mountain biking, and trail running. He has spent a lot of time road tripping around the U.S. and loves the diverse history and geography of the western states.
Music has always been a big part of Evan’s life. He studied classical piano in middle and high school, and his mom’s surprise gift of a banjo led him to love folk music and learn fingerstyle guitar. He has a DIY music studio where he works on keyboard, drum, and guitar parts.
He has taught Social Studies, English, and ESL, and has tutored many students in math and reading. He was immediately drawn to Waldorf teaching because of the interconnectedness of the subjects and emphasis on art. Evan is constantly learning about new things, whether it’s through books, podcasts, or nerdy youtube videos. He is thrilled to work in a school environment that focuses on a love of learning.
