Ian Patrick Hines is a certified NationBuilder Expert & Architect and the founder of The Beag Co. — a digital + field studio for forward thinking organizations. He’s focused on empowering organizations — through strategy, tools, and training — so that they’re in command of their own destiny, instead of relying on others to do for them.
From November 2012 – November 2013, he lived in Los Angeles, where he worked as a tech organizer at NationBuilder. He wrote documentation, investigated bug reports, and became the company’s in-house product expert. Prior to joining NationBuilder, he spent several years working in state and local politics in Maryland. He’s been involved in digital politics since 2003.
Ian lives and works in Anne Arundel County, Maryland, where his family has lived for five generations, with his wife Christy and their three young children.
