An independent study working on the Google Online Marketing Challenge and creating a marketing communication plan for a domestic violence shelter in Batesville, IN, for his capstone project finished off his senior year. Ian’s desire to further understand humanity and culture lead him to a second degree while at school.

FUN FACTS

Favorite childhood book:

Art Dog by Thacher Hurd because I’ve always wanted to live in Dogopolis and view the Mona Woofa.

Which app would be the last one you’d delete from your phone? Why?

I would have to say Twitter. Even though I don’t tweet very often, I feel like there are always interesting articles and information that can be found or accessed anytime through the app.

What is your favorite office product?

Well, if we are setting technology aside, I would have to say sticky notes. They don’t add the anxiety of having to start a whole new sheet of paper, stick to almost anything and feel rather cathartic to crumple up and recycle when you complete a task!
