Evan Zodl '17

In between doing his Computer Science homework and working on his IMM projects, this week’s Campus Cutie can be found riding the waves, or crafting new original origami designs. Evan Zodl, a Brand Ambassador for Jetty, a surfing and lifestyle company based in LBI, performs many hands-on projects for the company ranging from production to graphic design. Besides being skillful on his surfboard; however, he also creates art in the form of folded paper. In 2008, he launched “EZ Origami”, a YouTube channel featuring instructional origami videos for those of all experience levels. He has received over 20.6 million views with over 57,000 subscribers. Currently, he is working towards the publication of his own origami book. “My goal is to make origami fun and easy for people of all experience levels,” he says.
