Greetings! I’m Evan. I grew up in Catonsville, Maryland, just outside of Baltimore. In the summer of 2010 I moved to Philadelphia, where I’m currently pursuing a degree in English at Temple University. I love my new city and will be here until at least 2013.
I’m a member of Babel, Temple’s performance poetry collective. I hold a day job catering for an Italian restaurant. I like seeing live music, and I favor musicians who put a lot of thought into their lyrics and creativity into their musical approach. I enjoy hiking, camping, long walks on the beach (seriously), and any chance to spend time in nature.
I self-published my first novel, Mutt, in December of 2011. I am presently working on the sequel to Mutt, as well as a poetry chapbook tentatively titled We Are The Body. In the meantime, I’m trying to teach myself how to self-promote my first book. If you’d like to get in touch with me with questions, a review/interview request, or just to say hello, visit my “Contact” page for my info!
I support Occupy Philadelphia and stand in solidarity with worldwide nonviolent movements for social and economic justice.
