After a childhood filled with Led Zepplin, the Doors, Pink Floyd, and other Evan began his metal journal in the mid nineties when he finally moved from small, oil refinary town of Ponca City, Oklahoma to Stillwater, Oklahoma for college. Here he not only could occasionally pick up Oklahoma City's 100.5 the KATT, but he discovery Metal Blade's Metalmeister compilation. This changed everything, and thus began the journey into the music we know as Heavy Metal.

Evan, when he is not in the pit, lives in Norman, Oklahoma with his son and wife. He spends way too much time in front of a computer screen. He also is currently involved in a research project on judicial decision-making in child custody matters in the family courts.
