Check out this page to learn about what this website is all about.

If you want to learn about me, well, the page you are on right now is the place for that.

I’m Evan. I’m a husband, writer, marketing strategist, cheeseburger connoisseur, and a full-time bucket lister from Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

There are five things that I spend the most time thinking about. Combined, they make up the behind-the-scenes story of how I got started with bucket lists.

  1. Life is a series of moments
  2. Results come from persistent actions
  3. Celebrate successes, own up to failures
  4. Live to love
  5. Why not take a chance or two?

Current Happenings

I’m a huge believer in the value of having a now page. A now page is a single place where I can document what my current efforts and attention are being placed upon. Shouts to Derek Sivers for the brilliant concept.

So for a more up-to-date look a what I’m focusing on, you can view my now page.


Loves:  my wife, my family, my friends, my cat Kiwi (occasionally)

Likes: books, hiking, mountain climbing, movies, maps, Taylor Swift, random trivia, Cherry Starburst, free samples at Costco, Chicago sports

Dislikes: small talk, planes, texting, ticks, slow walkers, fitted sheets, desserts

Hates: resisting improvement because “this is how we’ve always done it.”
