Evan Stedman

I’ve been working at Concrete Vision ever since I graduated from Grand Valley State University (GVSU) with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science degree. My enthusiasm for technology began at an early age, and eventually I went to school with the goal of becoming an Aviation Engineer. Part of the curriculum was a computer science class, and because I enjoyed it so much, I switched majors, and now I apply what I’ve learned to help our Concrete Vision customers. When I’m not working, I like to host games of Dungeons and Dragons, participate in various crafts and hobbies with my fiancé, and hang with our four dogs and three cats.
