Evan Zodl

About Me

My name is Evan Zodl. I am an origami artist, surf photographer, and software engineer currently working as a Front End Developer at WorkWave. I have been folding paper for over 15 years, and in an effort to share my passion with the world, I began making instructional origami videos on YouTube in 2008. Since that time, I have taught origami to millions of people around the globe through my videos. In 2009, I began designing my own unique models inspired by fractals, spirals, and recursive patterns found in nature.
