Constantly torn between longing for the mountains and wishing to have his feet in the water, Evan Carter is quite happy to be living in Huntsville, AL, a nice halfway point between the two. A childhood in the Florida Keys led to culture shock at High School in Fairhope, AL, where he met an interesting array of people (many of whom he still sees on social media, although they mostly only prattle on about myopic and polarized political opinions nowadays, which makes him wish for other, more interesting, less stressful divrsions). He loves playing music, but his passion for that is not matched with a corresponding talent, so a he had to hatch a plan to be able to provide for his wonderful wife and (eventually) his bizarre toddler. It seems he liked school enough to spend several more years in school in order to be qualified to remain in the classroom. Apparently, a Master's Degree from Montevallo was enough to spur an interest in the powers at be in hiring him at his current school, because he's pretty sure that he was timidly terrified at his first job interview. He likes to think that he has since grown better at his career (and at being a generally acceptable guy), and is thankful to be teaching, instead of the myriad of other sketchy jobs he held prior to this. He enjoys interesting hairdos, brushing past hanging clothes in department stores, sonder, cool sheets, and theological discussions.
