Evan Gardner is a Creative Director, Producer, Shooter and Editor based in New York. Evan has filmed live events such as interviews with national politicians during the 2012 second Presidential Debate, and live concerts with artists such as Snoop Dog, Cobra Starship, and Big Sean. His work focuses on telling the true stories of people through video and photography. He loves collaboration with likeminded artists and organizations.
Growing up as a child, he was diagnosed with Apraxia at age 3 and did not say his first word until he was 5 years old. He had very intensive interventions including a special preschool placement, speech services 6 times weekly for many years, and special education services throughout his school career k-12.
This project is very meaningful to Evan and is part of his Graduate Thesis for his Masters degree at St. John's University, where he is obtaining a Masters of Science in International Communications.
