Hello there,

My name is Evan and I'm the dude behind Say Hello to the City, a lifestyle site based out of Des Moines, Iowa. I'm a lifelong Midwesterner, avid fan of Friday Night Lights, and a big believer in the power of creativity and community.

People often think the Midwest is just full of corn and insurance companies, but there's more to us than that, trust me. Over the last few years, the Midwest has become quite the place! Des Moines is no exception. Don't believe me? This site and many more are here to help ya.

Planning on visiting Des Moines soon? Check out my guide to the city over on Design*Sponge or shoot me an email here. I'd love to help you out. In the meantime, I hope you come to love the Midwest like I do. Whether you've lived here your whole life or you've just moved into these parts, I hope you feel right at home.

Come say hello to the City...
