Storytelling and character development. Music, effects and visual design. These are all elements that professional editors-- through experience and skill-- can entertain and capture the attention of television audiences, no matter the genre or venue.
Evan has been building stories, collaborating with producers and entertaining viewers for over 35 years as a professional editor. He has worked for major broadcast and cable networks, news organizations, and large corporations, building stories that entertain, inform, and deliver. Writing without words, yet finalizing the process.
Evan credits his father for introducing him to the world of television production. He first started working weekends as a "gofer" at CBS Television City during the first season of The Carol Burnett Show in 1967. After graduating UCLA, Evan moved to New York first working at WABC-TV's Operations Department, and later as an Operations Manager with ABC News. As his duties continued to center around videotape and editorial operations there, his skills were noticed by Viacom, where he joined the launch team in establishing the Showtime pay television network, where he was manager of Production and Studio Operations. As Showtime grew, Evan was transferred to Los Angeles in order to expand Showtime's presence in the Hollywood production community. He eventually started his own production company, Kittyhawk Interactive, which provided script to screen services for clientele in automotive, technology, and corporate communications markets in addition to support the pay television departments of the movie studios. As business grew, Evan found he was spending less time in the edit bay. He made the decision to curtail his production efforts, making the commitment join the community of freelance Avid Media Composer editors in 1992. And he's yet to stop.
