Howdy. My name is Evan Vega.

I'm an awesome email developer.

I have over ten years of experience working as an email developer hand-coding emails, landing pages, and microsites. Email is my true passion. I love the challenge of coding emails and the power of a well-crafted message and creative design. I am constantly exploring and experimenting with the latest interactive email techniques and trying to devise new ways to make emails amaze, excite, and delight readers.

I'm dedicated, determined, and self-motivated and I have a voracious appetite for learning and an eagerness to share knowledge. I bring tremendous energy and enthusiasm to the workplace and relish collaboration and problem solving.
