Evan Miller is a Senior Associate at Rodriguez Strategies
Evan's primary role is to harness data to help communication programs be more creative and efficient in outreach to constituents through every channel available. He excels at managing and analyzing large data sets and devising systems and processes to flip qualitative information into quantitative data. Evan's expertise in managing voter file and CRM data and platforms plays a key role in civic engagement and coalition building projects for Rodriguez Strategies. In his role as Data Director for the Yes on Proposition 22 campaign, Evan empowered the state-wide organizing team with the tools and training needed to educate and activate stakeholders. Over the last month of the campaign, he developed and managed the campaign’s volunteer texting program that resulted in nearly 200 volunteers trained and produced more than 1.8 million texts to CA voters.
Before joining Rodriguez Strategies, Evan served as a Regional Field Director for Sen. Michael Bennet's presidential campaign, managing all field operations and staff in Northeastern Iowa. Prior to his work for Senator Bennet, he worked in Washington, DC as a constituent liaison and legislative research aide for CA Congresswoman Julia Brownley. Evan first discovered his passion for data when he assisted in the launch of Digital Democracy, a first of its kind website created by faculty and students at the Institute of Advanced Technology and Public Policy at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. At the cutting edge of open and accountable government, the online platform used voice and facial recognition technology, data mining and natural language processing to transcribe all legislative hearing and floor session videos from state legislatures in California, Texas, New York, and Florida.
Evan received a degree in political science from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. During his time at Cal Poly, he led a small group of students in writing a bill (SB 467) that provides students with more thorough and transparent information about the costs of attending UC and CSU campuses. Evan helped build a coalition of supporters that included elected officials, student organizations, and non-profits that resulted in SB 467 being signed into law in October of 2019. Before attending Cal Poly, Evan transferred from Long Beach City College where he was a member of the football team. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Evan currently resides in San Diego and loves to spend time chasing his dog around Balboa Park and going sailing whenever he can.
