Rob Evans is a founding partner at Rocha Art. He holds a BA in business management economics from UC Santa Cruz and an MBA from Santa Clara University. A longtime friend of co-founders Ian Ross and Daniele Rocha, Rob left his successful career in corporate finance to pursue his passion for the arts, community service, and competitive cycling in 2012. In addition to facilitating exhibitions and mural projects, he documents Rocha Art’s various creative endeavors through videos and photography and manages their online presence.
True to Rocha Art’s philanthropic mission, Rob volunteers his time working with youth. He is a rider and director for the 501c3 youth cycling team, Bear Development Team, and mentors young people on their way to becoming professional cyclists. Rob’s passion for giving back to the community shows in his involvement with Rocha Art’s public art initiatives and their educational non-profit, 1 Brush Initiative, which provides art classes for underserved youth.
