Evan Higgins

A DC area native and SF/Fantasy fanboy, Evan Higgins earned a B.A. in English Literature and B.S. in Marketing from the University of Maryland. After interning at a rock radio station in college, he went on to work in the education department at PBS. Once there, Evan moved between the station relations, marketing and sales teams before settling onto the content/editorial team where he helped design educational resources and discovered his passion for content creation and refinement. Evan's love of fictional worlds has led him to CMS at MIT to study the way in which new media formats inform authorial ownership of their creation. Focusing on the relationship between canonical and non-canonical pieces of media, he is interested in how collaborative storytelling can be used to tell fuller, more immersive narratives. He can usually be found replaying early aughts video games, searching out up-and-coming rappers, and trying foods he can't pronounce.
