Derek Evans

I was raised in rural southern Illinois where I gained a liking and appreciation for natural resources and agriculture that has since been the focus of my career. As a web developer for NewLeaf, I am able to take my past experiences in agricultural field research and develop applications that help scientists conduct their own research. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my wife and two young daughters, especially when it involves being outdoors. I am also an avid St. Louis Blues fan and enjoy seeing a game live with family and friends.
