Evan Chavez currently lives in Temple City, CA. Between bouts of teaching and attempts at athleticism, he writes, paints, and draws upon inspiration and request. Dreams of digging for dinosaur bones flitted in childhood reveries, but stints at UC Irvine and CalArts, where he received his B.A. and M.F.A respectively, allowed the arts and writing in particular to abscond with his heart and mind. He co-edits for In-Process-Inventory, a literary journal, and periodically updates his blog.
