Absolutely. The manner and extent in/to which I think is largely a resulted of my family background. I love to pontificate about many of life's most complex questions and issues; be it the very nature of the self, the meaning - or absence thereof - of existence, geopolitics, astrophysics, social stratification, global poverty and hunger, disease, culture (both foreign and domestic), criminology, sociology, and philanthropy to name quite a few (but not all!). My inclination toward introspection and self-analysis often has counterproductive results, unfortunately. I struggle with chronic, persistent depression and anxiety every day of my life. These ailments tend to color my thinking much of the time, and the longer I think and analyze the further away I seem to get from elucidation or any sort of epiphany. Nevertheless, I feel social sciences have always been important to human intellectual and cultural development.
I am not merely open to the prospect, I am eager to listen to and engage with others.
Absolutely. The chance to interact with those who ponder many of the same things that I do affords me an opportunity at camaraderie and learning that I may not otherwise have.

My name is Ian and I reside in Sandy Springs with my partner, Wayne. I enjoy the examination and exploration of ideas; the product of which doesn't really matter so long as the journey is invigorating.
