Howdy, I'm Evan Meehan and currently I'm a digital nomad living in Medellin, Colombia.
I began training BJJ in 2004, and have spent about half of the interceding years training. Currently I am a purple belt, and prior to the CoronApocalypse I was training at Checkmat BJJ Medellin. In 2019 I began Judo, attaining the lofty rank of yellow belt and a 0/1 competition record. Teaching is one of my great passions and I was the head coach at Georgia State University's Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Club as well as one of the head coaches for Odyssey BJJ's kids program.
In 2018 I graduated with a Masters of Arts in History from Georgia State University and have been working as a freelance writer and editor from that point on. I'm happiest writing about the things I love (history and BJJ), wristlocking white belts, and making people tap to pressure.
