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

My name is Evan

I’m a writer, marketing strategist, fiancé, cheeseburger connoisseur, and a full-time bucket lister from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Yes, chances are it’s cold here right now.

I was born in 1993. I’m 116 days younger than Ariana Grande. 

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. Basically, it’s 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 fianceé, my family, my friends, my cat Kiwi (occasionally)

🙂 Likes – books, hiking, mountain climbing, movies, travel, 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.”
