TLDR: Conservative writer interested in economics, politics and religion. Former DC political researcher turned developer. Pursuing Ph.D in Economics at GMU.
My name is John Vandivier and I’m trying to change the world. Part of that involves serving as the Admin and primary Content Developer at After Economics.
- I’m married, 26 years old, conservative, and Christian.
- I recently completed George Mason University’s Master of Public Policy. Then realized no one cares until you have a Ph.D. So I’m getting a Ph.D.
- I previously worked as the Director of Research and Data Management at surgeRED.
- I am interested in economics, politics, religion, programming, music, games, and whatever else catches my attention.
Thanks to these people who have influenced me over the years in my education, career, and more:
- My whole family. In particular my wife Christina and my parents Cheryl and David.
- Paul Michalik and Tricia Rothenberg from Georgetown ISD. Jason Dean, Coach Gnarls, and my other GHS coaches back in ’06-08.
- Dr. Ross vanWassenhove, Dr. Polly Hardee, Dr. Jonathan Slapin from the University of Houston.
- Several professors from GMU whom I will not name until I have graduated for fear of looking like a kiss-up.
