Crew Profile: Evan Rapoport

PVS Member Since

HOMETOWN: Los Gatos, CA
PRIMARY DUTY:
OTHER RESPONSIBILITIES:
WORLDWIDE VOYAGE LEGS SAILED: Leg 6: Waitangi to Auckland
Raised in New York, Evan lived on O'ahu for 8 years before moving to his current home in Los Gatos, California, where he works at Google[x]. To Evan, Hōkūleʻa is a centerpiece of cultural renaissance unique in a world in which many people assimilate into society and lose their unique heritage. He hopes that the Worldwide Voyage can share Hawai'i's stories with people around the world and motivate native people to work together on global issues from climate change to saving our oceans.

While at sea, Evan misses pizza. Back on land, Evan misses the feeling of the infinite - the unreachable horizon in every direction, miles of deep blue ocean below you, and the limitless skies and galaxies above you.

    I believe that you can create your own “luck”. You need to be observant, willing to take some risks, and comfortable with wearing your heart on your sleeve. Put things out into the universe and ultimately something incredible will occur.
