About Evan

My curiosity with making and design has lead to what is now 7 years of professional experience in the product design and development field divvied among several reputable NZ design firms. Working on countless projects ranging from amphibious boats through to kids bicycles has led to numerous design awards while working with amazingly talented and overall great people around the world. Just for fun, the curiosity occasionally spills over beyond the workplace with countless personal projects wherever the intrigue lies.

I have always held a strong passion for the outdoors which transcends into numerous land and water based hobbies. This too has called for getting out and about, including backpacking several continents, offshore sailing, and other smaller, yet equally as fun excursions. As a result intensifying my appreciation for the natural environment and the importance of sustainable practices, particularly within the product design field.

Looking back on previous projects, I have added not only aesthetic value, but also unique mechanical solutions, manufacturing detailing, and holistic product lifecycle recommendations in order to achieve the best possible outcome
