Through high school, Evan spent each waking day studying music and taking an active roll in his faith. He graduated top of his class in classical guitar and quickly moved west to pursue performing and teaching.

He also composed the music for three seasons of Solitary, Fox Reality's number one rated reality show, which has now been sold globally.
In 2010 he joined an independent film company, where he began learning the ropes on the business side. He now runs Central Avenue Music and works closely with Central Avenue Pictures developing projects. Evan currently lives in Hollywood, California.
