Evan Farmer was born July 28, 1972 in Asmara, Ethiopia. Evan brings a diverse array of talents to TLC's WHILE YOU WERE OUT as the host of the hit home design series currently in it’s third season. In addition to his music career and roles on screens large and small, Evan studied architecture at Tulane University and has worked as both a draftsman and as a graphic designer for several firms. He also recently started his own business (Renovolution) renovating single-family homes, and has a strong interest and background in carpentry. Evan's on-camera presence, combined with his education and real-life experiences, make him a perfect fit to host WHILE YOU WERE OUT. Evan first made entertainment news however, with his portrayal the central character “Jerry O'Keefe” in MTV's first made-for-television movie 2GE+HER, for which he also recorded lead vocals on the soundtrack and follow up album (the sum total of which has amounted to platinum sales worldwide). He also co-wrote one of the film's songs, “You're My Baby Girl” (featured on the first Album). 2GE+HER's music videos "U+ME= US" and "The Hardest Part of Breaking Up (is getting back your stuff)" sat amongst the top 10 most requested videos on MTV for over a year. Evan continued his MTV/2GE+HER tenure reprising his lead role as “Jerry” in a weekly television series based on the film. Television credits include guest-starring roles on the TV series' D.A.G. and JAG. Evan also played the recurring role of “Steve” on the CBS Daytime Drama Guiding Light, as well as a three year stint doing voices on the popular animated comedy Daria. Evan has also hosted MTV's top rated show Total Request Live (TRL) several times and is a staple guest of several ongoing VH1 shows.
