Evan manages a wide range of policy and constituent issues for Councilmember Rasmussen, bringing experience from his diverse background in communication, community outreach, and public policy.
A graduate of Western Washington University, as well as Washington's world-class community college system, Evan began his career far from his native Pacific Northwest home as an education technology specialist in the U.S. Virgin Islands, where he worked to improve the use of technology in the classroom.
In Washington, DC Evan pursued a passion for advocacy that was initially fostered through his involvement in a variety of student organizations and local campaigns. As the Outreach Director at a non-profit run by the spouses of Arab Ambassadors to the United States, he worked on domestic and international efforts to raise awareness of, and generate resources for, specific cultural and policy issues.
Returning to Seattle, Evan has worked as an aide to state legislators in the Senate and House, and has worked independently as a communications and advocacy consultant. Evan seeks out adventure during every season of the year, and you will often find him in sun, rain, and snow exploring the state with his two equally adventurous husky-mix pups.
