Evan Marshall believes that every brand and person has a story to tell. We all desire to tap into the creative juices within us; however, we struggle to uncover the narrative that defines us. Evan’s passion in life is enabling people and brands to quench their creative thirst by helping them bring their stories to life.

This is a discipline he has put into practice throughout his career while focusing on content development, social strategy development, and paid social amplification.

He has assisted in building the High Fashion Living platform with a global reach, will be leading the forthcoming Black Menswear X Blavity Social Igniter series, Nike's Youth Chicago Content Creators program, and has participated in both the Menfluential 2017 IG Strategy Panel, and the Chicago Advertising Federation Social 2018 Social Strategy Panel.
