He ventured into multimedia journalism in 2007 and is committed to developing short and long form documentary storytelling at The Associated Press.
Evan participated in the September 2008 MediaStorm Storytelling Workshop
. He had the following to say about his experience:
The MediaStorm Multimedia Workshop was a great opportunity to learn from some of the best producers in the business. It taught me to think of the story from a totally different mindset.
It was great to learn the technical skills to produce multimedia, but even better to learn about the approach to each story. To blend the power of still photography, audio, and video in a thoughtful and meaningful way is the lesson I'll take away from the workshop. I walk away inspired, and ready to apply the lessons learned at MediaStorm to my work.
