Mystery Creative is the creative home of designer & filmmaker Evan Warner.
Evan developed a passion for filmmaking, technology and design while growing up in rural Nova Scotia. Evan completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) with a focus on film and a minor in political science from Simon Fraser University and a Bachelor of Education (BEd) at Acadia University. He previously lived and worked in Vancouver and Montreal as a freelance filmmaker editing independent Canadian documentaries.
Evan currently lives in Wolfville, Nova Scotia with his wife and kids where he works remotely as the SIKU Product Manager at the Arctic Eider Society, an Indigenous non-profit based in Sanikiluaq, Nunavut.
Evan has been a driving force behind SIKU, the Indigenous Knowledge Social Network since its inception. As the Product Manager, he is responsible for the SIKU iOS, Android and web development teams while also doing the majority of the UI and UX design work.
While in Vancouver and Montréal, Evan worked in many different roles in the film industry but is most well known (and was nominated for a British Columbia Film Award) for his work co-editing the feature documentary film People of a Feather, directed by Joel Heath. People of a Feather has played at festivals all over the world and is the winner of many prestigious awards including The Best Film of British Columbia in 2011 awarded by the Vancouver Film Critics Circle and The Best Feature Documentary at The Green Film Festival in Seoul Korea in 2012.
Upon completion of his Bachelor of Education, Evan was certified to work as a Technology Education and Social Studies high school teacher in Nova Scotia. During his time as the Educational Coordinator for the Arctic Eider Society, he coordinated the completion of the Arctic Sea Ice Education Package, a series of over 25 culturally relevant high school science lesson plans for Inuit students.
Evan likes to stay active with a love of everything from hockey and badminton to hiking, and kayaking. During the summer of 2011, Evan adventured across Canada on a 3 month long bicycle trip.
Many of his core values come from his time spent as both a councillor and coordinator of several different environmental summer camps run by the Adventure Earth Centre in Halifax with a strong focus on experiential environment education.
He satisfies his competitive side by regularly defeating his friends/opponents in Fantasy Hockey alongside his co-manager/father.
Father to two wonderful kiddos, he love exploring the world with them and watching them grow.
