Ian is a first-year student at Marquette University and is majoring in Data Science. He is looking to also tack on Political Science, History, and/or Economics to his majors/minors but he still has a little bit of time to figure that out. Relatively new to the political scene, Ian has become intrigued with political theory, American foreign policy, and nonviolence practice. Although he does not know precisely where he stands politically because "he has not read/learned enough to establish that yet," he is fascinated by different schools of anarchist thought. He is highly impressed with the works of Ron Paul, Friedrich Hayek, Leo Tolstoy, Henry George, Murray Rothbard, Gandhi, Lao Tzu, Noam Chomsky, and many others. If not writing for 71 Republic, Ian will most likely be found reading, playing tennis, playing chess, or sitting on his phone wasting his day.
