As I said, knowledge is important. I've taken a lot of courses, but I have an interest or special knowledge in a few subjects. I'm very comfortable with both American and Middle Eastern history and politics from roughly 1600 to the present. My major involves evaluating and solving problems in governance and administration, which has exposed me to a healthy dose of government, philosophy, and economics. I have done a significant amount of work aimed at solving the current healthcare crisis in America. In addition, I have studied military, education, and monetary policy, along with some aspects of existential philosophy and phenomenology.

About Me

My name is Evan, but I go by evkl online, all lowercase. I've been working on Bulbagarden since Archaic took over in December of 2002, first working on the forums and later serving as the first Editor-in-Chief of Bulbapedia. I was the head of the Forums from 2006-ish until January of 2011, when I became Chief of Staff of Bulbagarden. Since 2012 I've been one of the Vice Webmasters of the site, overseeing high-level operations. I currently live and work in the NYC area.

I've been playing Pokémon since I was 9, so that's quite a while ago. I've played multiple games in every Generation, although I've played less as time has gone on - other commitments took over and I think the quality of the series has been on a general gradual decline (which does not lessen my affection for the franchise or the work I do for Bulbagarden.)

On other personal notes, I think knowledge is very important. I also think music is very important. Those two aren't really related at all, I'm just saying. On the knowledge front, I think Bulbapedia is a very good thing, as a specialized repository for knowledge that otherwise wouldn't be aggregated anywhere else. And learning in general is really good, and you should do your homework before you make edits on 'Pedia. On the music front, if you're talking to me, expect an away message or signature or something involving an obscure reference to music or lyrics. Or maybe not-so-obscure. Katy Perry is cool with me. Music is complex and relaxing--and we're missing both in our lives a lot.
