Andrew Evans performed his first professional magic show when he was 12 years old - but as a magician, he doesn’t care much for tricks. Instead, he prefers to create wonder. He has designed, built, and performed one-of-a-kind illusions while also consulting for other performers and theatrical productions. When he's not sawing girls in half, Andrew is in search of finding new ways of bringing magic to the world as a Product Designer and the Design and Innovation firm IDEO. Most recently, his talk "Designing Wonder: Exploring the Intersection of Magic and Design" has been featured at the Creative Fuel Conference in Sydney, Australia; TEDxStanford; and AutoDesk's Design Night.
Beyond the world of magic--but not too far from it--Andrew has designed and built high-end treehouses with Nelson Treehouse and Supply in Seattle, WA; created theater sets in NYC; and produced the Immersive Theater experience "Art Behind Bars" on Alcatraz Island. He is also a guest lecturer at the Hasso Plattner Institute of Design at Stanford (aka, the D.School)
Andrew holds a B.A. in Engineering from Brown University and an M.S. in Product Design from Stanford University.
