Evan Thomas

Digital Content Producer

Evan covers technology and the Internet and produces all sorts of video content for Newsy and its partners. The Colorado native splits his time between coffee, videogames and bicycling; but has elected to not worry about splitting his music time — instead he just wears headphones eighteen hours a day.
