EVAN SNOW / CO-FOUNDER
Evan Snow is a Native South Floridian hailing from Broward County whose thoroughly committed to making his community a better place to live. Coming from the Information Technology Industry Evan initially discovered a love for Conferences, Talks, and Events as he worked to help build the South Florida Tech community by participating in various events including eMerge Americas & IT Palooza. Being an avid fan of culture, Evan wanted to make the events and activities that he would attend in Miami & Palm Beach Counties more readily available locally here in Broward, which is one of the reasons why he started the #Choose954 movement to try and help revitalize Broward from a Cultural & Economic Perspective. Through this platform, Evan curates & creates local events amongst our shared passions of Food, Music, Technology, Talks, and The Arts. These passions for fostering a better sense of community & creating memorable experience lead to the birth of Art Fort Lauderdale ("The Art Fair On The Water") in an effort to help further the Arts & Culture locally in Downtown Fort Lauderdale where he resides.
A contributing member of Emerge Broward, the greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance Six Pillars Emerging Leaders Council, and The Fort Lauderdale Bloggers Union, Evan believes in utilizing "Kind Collaboration", a staple of the Bloggers Union, as an effort to help unite his community that he's extremely passionate about. This passion can be witnessed and shared with the community once a month in the Fort Lauderdale & Palm Beach chapters of Creative Mornings, a monthly breakfast lecture series held in 160+ cities around the world, where Evan Co-Hosts and Organizes local chapters monthly talks for free. It was after attending his third CreativeMornings event that Evan was deeply inspired by a noteworthy speaker who shared her story of overcoming life's challenges, and preached to "Be Genuine, Be Authentic, and Pursue Your Passions". Evan hopes that throughout all of his efforts & pursuing his passions through the growth of Choose954 that we together can help make Fort Lauderdale not only a better place to vacation, but a better place to live in a culturally diverse community.
