Born in Seattle, Bryce grew up in the small town of Roseburg, Oregon. He studied finance at Seattle Pacific University, University of Washington and Seattle University splitting time in Whistler, BC, where he started skiing professionally for companies including Seattle’s very own K2. In 2001 Bryce started evolución Innovations, Inc. (evo), an action sports lifestyle retailer out of his Wallingford apartment. evo, based in the Fremont neighborhood of Seattle is one of the fastest growing retail businesses in the country with an award winning store in Fremont and web site on the world wide interweb. The blending of commerce, cause, culture and community have differentiated evo in the marketplace and have strong ties to the philosophies behind evolution Projects.
Starting in 1997, Bryce started with single family residential and moving into multi-family and mixed-use projects with a strong emphasis on creating distinct experiences and spaces meant to engage and build community.
Bryce lives in Ballard with his wife Elise. They love the access to the mountains for skiing, snowboarding and biking, the sound for kite-surfing and of course the city of Seattle with so much to offer.

Raised in Seattle, Ira attended high school at Seattle Prep and graduated from The University of San Diego with a business degree in marketing and finance. He stuck around California working in finance and technology before racking up powder days on the ski patrol at Mammoth Mountain. Ira has been involved in a growing list of marquee projects in Seattle. In addition to the core projects with evolution projects, he is invested in and manages multi-family and single family properties around Seattle. He is passionate about working on different infill projects in great locations that add value to the community and showcase the amazing people and businesses that call Seattle their home.
Ira now lives with his wife Courtney in the Montlake neighborhood. They enjoy skiing, travelling and eating. And when the opportunity arises, combining all three. It is important to note that Ira is a creature of habit and the “attention to detail” member of the evolution projects team. He can be found daily at noon ordering a sandwich (with no tomatoes but add pickles) from The Other Coast Café in Ballard. If you see him there, say hi and ask him how his latest project is going.
