Noah has always been fascinated by how things work, hacking and tinkering in the family garage. His life’s work has been a continual pursuit of better living through technology. Today, he helps organizations bridge the digital divide, envisioning and developing services for the connected age.
Katie is one of the rare Portland natives. Her healthy obsession with travel and experiencing diverse cultures, has helped develop a deep humility and empathy. At Evolve, she gets to wear all her favorite hats in design research, trends, ethnography and product design.
Wes’ formative design education blended a healthy mix of homemade hill racing contraptions, and reading about how things work from little cavemen and mammoths. Now he finds deep satisfaction in balancing visual as well as functional problem solving with product design.
Christian’s upbringing in the world of impeccable German design shaped his love for Porsche and his obsession with perfect detail. He holds numerous patents, teaches design at university level, and has created a range of award winning designs throughout his career.

Chris spent the majority of his early career looking into peoples cupboards trying to figure out why they behave the way they do. These days he is an expert in translating insight into actionable strategy connecting people with products and brands.
Joanna switched the spotlight of the stage for the scrutiny of numbers. Much to her delight, her onstage eloquence easily translated into a meticulous control of the books. At Evolve, Joanna lays the foundations for us to have the confidence to focus on the things we love.
