Evan Hamilton – community builder, musician, obsessively busy.
My name is Evan Hamilton. I like to build communities and help companies and customers love each other.
I’m currently Director of Community & Customer Loyalty at ZOZI. We’re the site you should go to when you think “I want to do something awesome.” My department focuses on retaining customers and acquiring new ones by providing great customer service and building an emotional connection.
Previously I was Head of Community at UserVoice and before that I was Community Ambassador at Flock.
In my free time I sing and play guitar as Kicking Tuesday. I’m also co-founder of a holiday called International Beer Day. And I always find other projects to soak up my free time, because I like building things and dislike feeling bored.
I’ve always liked building things. As a kid I wanted to draw comics for a living. In high school I led a modmaking group for the computer game called Myth II and worked on designing a computer game. In college I designed theatrical lighting and started a band called Monsters are not Myths. In 2011 I started Kicking Tuesday.
I live in Oakland and hella heart it. I work in San Francisco, and dig it. I went to school in Santa Cruz, and it was great while it lasted. I’ve always lived in California, and I can’t think of anywhere else that I’d call home.
