What I'm Doing Now

Living (my main focus)

Life is not meant to be lived alone.  

I am surrounding myself with people whom I care dearly about and making time and effort to authentically grow with each individual.

Eva, my niece. Being around her makes my heart full.

My girlfriend. She makes the world seem bright and optimistic and simultaneously makes me a better man every day. Building a life with her brings me unsurpassed joy.

My family and friends. They support me, enrich me, and make me laugh and love deeply.


My 9-5 job remains an integral part of my life.  Not only does it pay the bills, but it gives me structure, accountability and numerous personal growth opportunities.  Currently, I am a social/digital strategist at GMR Marketing helping global companies take their marketing campaigns to the next level.

This website (EvanNickel.com) is not only my side hustle but my true passion project as well. I have a burning desire to help other people learn how to live full lives and the hope is that this website works toward that goal.


How to cook. From 2015 – 2018 I spent a daily average of 5 minutes in the kitchen each day. All of which was put towards making the coffee. I want to learn how to shop for food, prepare healthy meals, and enjoy the entire process. 

How to create a home with someone.


Climbing the 50 State Highpoints is my longest ongoing quest. An early addition to my bucket list, criss-crossing across the United States to knock off all 50 states has been an immensely rewarding challenge that continually forces me to improve my logistical planning skills and physical endurance.

Reading books.

Watching movies.

Thinking About

Headphone jacks are amazing. No matter how you put it in, it will work. Sensational.

The goal of this page is to act as a visible, public reminder of where my priorities currently lie.  It will change as my life changes.
