Hello, my name is Evan. I am Tangle clan born for the Mexican Clan and paternally English/Welsh. I live in the ancestral lands of the Chinook, Cowlitz, Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, Confederated Tribes of Siletz, and Clackamas ( known as portland, or). 

I am a queer Diné/Navajo creative using filmmaking and photography documenting stories, uplifting community, and empowering marginalized voices. From using vintage rangefinder cameras to mirrorless digital cameras, I work with clients to thoughtfully create each project.
