Los Angeles, CA
Evan is a first-year student in Seventh College studying Structural Engineering. As someone who grew up in the San Gabriel Valley, he’s been surrounded by a homogenous group of people from similar backgrounds and thus has a liking for the comfort and community that such a group of people can bring into his life. Conversely, he also appreciates the diversity and new perspectives that he’s experienced coming to UC San Diego, and even more so after joining Alpha Kappa Psi and getting to know the brothers with all their different backgrounds and unique interests.
Professionally, Evan is still looking for an outlet for his personal and professional skills. While he is interested in structural engineering and the concepts and physics behind how the many structures in our world work, he also has found a new enthusiasm for computer science and programming and is interested in the ever-expanding world of digital technology from both a professional and intellectual standpoint. After an IT internship last summer with Epson, a computer electronics company, as well as taking online coding courses for fun during winter break, he’s learned about and experienced the world of tech hands-on, and can’t wait to explore this field academically, personally, and professionally. He hopes, in his future career, to apply both creativity and technical skills to create something that will help and impact people.
In his free time, Evan enjoys discovering new spots on or around campus by bike, braving challenging hikes with rewarding views, and is extremely passionate about music — whether that be playing it or listening to it. He has an abundance of experience in playing classical cello as well as piano and has dabbled in guitar through the means of Ed Sheeran and One Direction singalongs. He is fond of hip-hop and classical music, particularly symphonies and cello concertos of the late Romantic Era. Additionally, Evan is an avid enjoyer of playing basketball, and after moving to San Diego, he’s also has gained a newfound affinity for surfing and volleyball, things that exemplify his love for constantly exploring and trying new things. Even as a new member of the fraternity, Evan has quickly grown to love and appreciate the unwavering brotherhood and constant support within Alpha Kappa Psi, and can’t wait to create life-long bonds and everlasting memories with his brothers.
