about us

David N. Evans is a student of the Integrated Model of Interpreting (IMI), which allows practitioners to view and analyze their work in holistic and non-evaluative terms, and is dedicated to the practice of reflective dialogue at the Etna Project: A Community of Reflective Practitioners (ask about it). A nationally-certified practitioner providing ASL–English interpretation and translation services since 1987, David works extensively in conference and platform arenas, 12-step/recovery, performance, and community settings.

Educating interpreters since 1992, David’s sessions are interactive, entertaining, and informative—creating an inclusive, relaxed, and safe environment for all audiences. Accomplishments include presenting three keynotes, two National Alliance of Black Interpreters (NAOBI) conferences, one National Association of the Deaf (NAD) conference, and five national RID conferences (once with a record attendance of over 1,250 participants in his session), numerous regional and state conferences, as well as local seminars and workshops. David established Bridge Communications in 1996 to further his goals of providing skill-building and video materials for interpreters.

When not on the road presenting or interpreting, David makes his home in Minneapolis where he owns a beautiful 1911 house with a cozy fireplace. He loves playing Frisbee, is a voracious reader, roller skates, dances, loves disco, and walking around the city’s many lakes.
