My name is Evan Deschenes I&#39;m a junior studying new media and studio art at the University of Maine Orono. Aside from school I love the outdoors, from hiking to snowboarding and everything in between I&#39;m all about exploring. When not doing physical activities I am soothing my ears to the sounds of Phish and The Grateful Dead. I love expressing my adventures through photography and I hope my posts can give you a look into the amazing experience in Barcelona that I am having!</span></p>
