Review Editor


Evan lives in good ol' colorful Boulder, Colorado. He's worked in the outdoor industry doing everything from helping to guide dog sledding trips to rock and ice climbing. After working sales and marketing for premier outdoor recreation brands, he's now pursuing the culinary and construction industries. When recreating, find him cycling, sailing, and sport climbing - these have always been his favorite hobbies. Geeking out on gear and anything design-related are his go-to topics over evening beverages. He's repaired bicycles and motorcycles in Mexico and the US, and his handyperson skills have made him a favorite tenant for many a landlord. When not researching new tech, he's pursuing his wine enthusiast ambitions.
