BIO: Ian Overton was born and raised in Fairbanks, Alaska, where he developed a deep appreciation of both the great outdoors, and the importance of science and infrastructure in supporting human life in extreme environments. After finishing interdisciplinary studies at the University of Alaska Anchorage in 2004, he became very active in the political fight over science, in the LaRouche Political Action Committee, where he developed a love for both Mozart and astrophysics. In 2010, he joined the Kesha Rogers congressional campaign to “Save NASA Impeach Obama” and helped her win the Democratic Party nomination. Today, Ian is currently working as the campaign manager and choral director, for the Kesha Rogers 2012 campaign.
