Evan is inspired by the unpredictable nature of his job; he likes that every project presents a unique set of challenges to be overcome through collaborative problem solving with others. Solution-oriented by nature, Evan’s diplomatic temperament serves him well when he’s negotiating scope and budget with subcontractors. His approach to work is in finding a balance between focused professionalism and fun on the job. “It’s exhausting to spend 40–50 hours a week straight-faced,” he said. Outside of work, Evan enjoys skiing, biking, running and traveling, as well as hanging out with his two dogs, Max and Max—both named separately by him and his wife before they met.
