Calling the Dana Point area home for a while, his family settled in the beautiful city of, San Juan Capistrano. In September 2021 Evan moved to Concord, North Carolina. “I want to be closer to the industry, it’s been so much easier networking since the move. It’s been a real change in atmosphere, and so far I am loving it.”

From age Twelve until he was 19, he played golf competitively winning many tournaments and reaching a +1 handicap!

With local tracks closing, the Garvy family made a choice to hang up the Helmet for short time, and then COVID hit. The struggle to get Evan back on track was not of their doings, but they remained focused and Vision Driven.
