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.
- Married to the amazing @mrstinavandivier. One son, one daughter, and three dogs.
- I am particularly interested in economics, politics, religion, programming, music, and games.
- I’m a senior software engineer at Capital One. I also teach programming.
- I’m a Ph.D. Candidate in the George Mason University Economics department. I previously obtained a Master in Public Policy from GMU and a Bachelor of Science with a double major in Economics and Political Science from the University of Houston.
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.
