In 2017, Evan, along with Dionne O'Dell, Kathryn Stahl, and Ryan Duda began devising Farm! A Musical Experience, an original musical written specifically for children and young adults on the autism spectrum. This sensory-friendly production debuted on April 21st, 2017 at Michigan State University becoming one of the first university created sensory friendly productions. After its premiere, Farm toured to many Michigan schools in 2018-19 and was hosted by Wharton Center for Performing Arts. In 2019, the team formed the Sense-Ability Ensemble and collaborated with architects from the University of Michigan to create another brand new sensory-exploratory musical know as POND, which incorporated the use of interactive fabric to create a textile and highly sensual environment for neurodiverse audiences.
Evan is an actor combatant with the Society of American Fight Directors (SAFD). He has recommended passes in unarmed combat and quarter staff. He is also skilled in graphic design, animation, Adobe Photoshop and videography, designing projects for Aurora Theatre, LML Music Presents & Kennesaw State University. All of his work with computer screens has rendered Evan near-sighted but he often copes with his vision difficulties by playing the Alto Saxophone, an instrument that he has performed with for over a decade.
Evan was last seen on stage in Aurora Theatre Children’s Playhouse production of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow as Ichabod Crane. He can currently be seen performing with Herschend Family Entertainment and telling chilling tales on the Lawrenceville Ghost Tours.
In the year 2002, a 5-year old found himself in front of an audience and a couple of cameras while standing on stage. Unaware that he was the ring bearer of a wedding, this toddler knew exactly what he had to do as he demonstrated a variety of dance moves inspired by the song Mr. Knickerbocker. Most people believed that Evan completely ruined a beautiful wedding that day. But others saw a child that needed an outlet to create, entertain and perform. This eventually led to him pursuing a career in performance arts.
After growing up in Belleville, MI, Evan began taking college classes at age 14 at Washtenaw Community College. He completed his education with an Associates in Occupational Studies & a certificate in 3D animation at the age of 17. In May of 2018, he graduated from Michigan State University with a BFA in Theatre. He then moved to Lawrenceville, GA, to join the Aurora Apprenticeship Company 2018-2019 and now currently lives in Atlanta, GA.
