World Traveler: Evan Hall

Evan is a third year studying a combined major in Geography and Earth and Ocean Sciences, with honors. He also enjoys a good physical geography pun, so feel to break the ice with this gem. Originally from Kamloops, BC, Evan is not the type to stay in one place for too long.  Having been to ”just fifteen” countries, Evan is a true outdoorsman and quite a character.
