The Team

Evergreen is powered by a team of knowledgeable executives, supported by rock-star talent, and backed by experienced production and broadcast professionals – committed to bringing entertaining content to people wherever they are.

Michael DeAloia

Chief Executive Officer

Michael is the CEO of Evergreen Podcasts. It has been an illuminating and fun experience. As a published author, columnist for a large daily newspaper and former host of a syndicated radio program, Michael enjoys the tumult and opportunity the old media and new media industries offer. Born, raised and corn-fed in Dayton, OH, Michael took his first big step in the world by attending Xavier University in Cincinnati, OH. After graduating college, he worked as a software developer focusing on UNIX (the stone age of computer languages).

Michael made his way to Cleveland, OH after being accepted into Case Western Reserve University. “Everything great in my life – both professionally and personally – has happened in Cleveland. What a great, great place to live.” Michael lives in Lakewood, OH with his wife and precocious daughter.

David Allen Moss

Chief Creative Officer

David grew up in rural Burton, Ohio where he enjoyed (what some might say) was a storybook upbringing. In ’89 that all came to an abrupt end, when his family moved to Wisconsin and Moss went on to study industrial design at RIT in Rochester, New York. He later transferred to Purdue, joined the All-American Marching Band (yes, he’s a bando), later earning a BA in professional writing and visual communications. In ‘94 Moss headed south to Indiana University, where he launched his career as Graphics/Multimedia Director for the Learn More Indiana project. Along the way, he explored life as recording artist and founding bass/vocalist of two Bloomington-based indie rock bands, until his eventual return to beloved Cleveland in ‘99.

Moss’ disruptive background in creative direction, digital design and technology have made for a career on the leading-edge. In the last decade alone, David launched Future Center for Design and Tech Transfer at CIA, two boutique design firms and the culinary content company, Emerging Chefs – all arguably ahead of their time. Moss brings mad skills to Evergreen, where he’s fired up to help grow our family of brands into an international conversation.

Gerardo Orlando

Chief Content Officer

Gerardo grew up in Lorain, OH and has spent much of his career in the Cleveland area. After studying political science at Ohio State and graduating from Harvard Law School, Gerardo spent ten years practicing business law at a large law firm in Cleveland with an emphasis on mergers and acquisitions. He then caught the entrepreneurial bug and started an online publishing company, riding the ups and downs of the Internet era. Gerardo has also worked with companies in developing and implementing marketing and sales strategies.

Gerardo’s passion for content development and lifelong learning drew him to the growing podcasting industry. “Evergreen has built an amazing portfolio of podcasts, and I’m excited to join the company and help grow the network. Our entire team is committed to producing compelling original content and also finding talented podcasters who can thrive by joining our network.”

When she's not working, you can find her exploring the city's restaurant scene, checking out a show, or cheering on her teams from the stands (with a healthy dose of antacid, of course).

Bill Huffman

Host, Producer

Bill Huffman is a news junkie. He caught the bug when he was in high school when Mr. Kraynack said being a reporter gives you a front row seat to history. After that, Bill was hooked. He was the A&E editor and reporter for The Cauldron at Cleveland State University where he covered everything from movie premieres to Snoop Dogg’s birthday party. Bill interned with Newsradio WTAM 1100 as a general assignment reporter where the addiction only grew stronger.

His first professional media job was as head of the editorial board for WOIO. Bill would coordinate with anchors, reporters and editors to come up with editorial ideas for the station’s general manager. He then parlayed that position into a producer gig for the one and only Carl Monday at WOIO. Bill then worked as a producer for News5 which is what led him to go “all in” on podcasting. So it’s safe to say Bill has been trying to feed his fix since he got a taste.

Bill has worked in radio, newspapers, television, blogging, and for the last three years, podcasting. Bill produces and hosts the successful Who Killed…? podcast. His first series was Who Killed Amy Mihaljevic? Last but not least you may see Bill on TV here and there because he is also a true crime talking head for ID Discovery and the Oxygen network.

If you can’t find Bill in the studio, chances are he is either on the golf course, sailboat racing or ripping fresh powder on the ski mountain.
