Ian is currently attending James Madison University (Go Dukes!) where he is pursuing a dual degree – Bachelor of Science in Communications and Bachelor of Arts in Media Arts & Design. He loves how these two degrees conflate his creativity with his interpersonal skills; traits he uses as head Political Correspondent for JMU’s news broadcast station, Breeze TV. Running the show’s political section has required him to demonstrate leadership in guiding a creative team towards an objective in a timely fashion. He also works as the Special Activities & Morale Manager for JMU’s student-staffed call center, Madison Connection, where he led, motivated and trained callers to contact associates of JMU in order to generate financial support for the university’s operations. After graduating from JMU, he aspires to attend law school and study to become a Criminal Lawyer in the D.C. area.
He often uses his free time to read in any capacity and has completed over 200 books in the last five years. Beyond this, he adores finding time to write and has finished three feature length screenplays, one of which won the first-place prize of $2,500 at James Madison University’s SMAD awards gala. He often spends his summer days bike riding in the Northern Virginia area and listening to classic rock on his backyard deck.
