David N. Evans

BMC Facilitator Bio

The Bilingual Mediation Center works with professionals in the arena of teaching, interpretation, and assessment. These colleagues are of the highest caliber and meet or exceed our standards.

David N. Evans (he/him) is a student of the Integrated Model of Interpreting (IMI), which allows practitioners to view and analyze their work in holistic and non-evaluative terms. He is dedicated to the practice of reflective dialogue at the Etna Project: A Community of Reflective Practitioners. A nationally-certified practitioner providing ASL-English interpretation and translation services professionally since 1987, David works extensively in conference and platform arenas, 12-step/recovery, and a variety of community settings. He has been one of the primary interpreters for Bread of Life Deaf Lutheran Church since 2014, and one of the primary interpreters for a Lutheran Seminary since 2019.

Educating interpreters for over 25 years, David has benefited greatly from his own work and study with the Bilingual Mediation Center (BMC) and Betty Colonomos. Rather than the traditional approach of lecturing, David now strives to provide activities to engage in and then reflect on through dialogue. This allows participants to make their own discoveries about their work and process, thereby enabling them to interpret more effectively.

David makes his home in Minneapolis. He is a voracious reader, loves playing Frisbee, roller skating, disco, and walking around the city's many lakes.
