Hello. My name is Ian Patrick Hines. Thanks for taking a moment to visit my website.
I’m a Republican digital strategist, online fundraiser, and web designer. I’m also a practicing Roman Catholic, a father of three, a Cub Scout leader, and a lacrosse coach. I work from home, and I collect tattoos.
My goal is to help conservatives raise more money online, and win.
Ian Patrick Hines is an internationally recognized expert in digital strategy and website design for political campaigns and advocacy organizations.
Since 2015, he’s helped to support conservative and center-right campaigns & causes in eight countries and fifteen U.S. states, including British Prime Minister Theresa May, the National Party of New Zealand, the Britain Stronger in Europe campaign, and U.S. Senator Deb Fischer.
Ian got his start in politics as a digital campaigner and website manager for Howard Dean’s 2004 U.S. presidential campaign, which pioneered new approaches to online campaigning. Then a Democrat, he earned his bachelor’s degree in political science and master’s degree in public administration, and went on to serve several years as a public servant and political appointee in Maryland.
In 2012, after a period of personal growth and political evolution, Ian left the Democratic Party and began to identify as a conservative. He left his home state of Maryland and traveled to Los Angeles, where he worked at the non-partisan political software startup NationBuilder. There, he honed his skills in grassroots organizing, email deliverability, and website design.
After his tenure at NationBuilder, Ian began a career as a consultant. In 2015, he founded the eponymously named agency Hines Digital, which has quickly risen to become one of the premier consulting agencies in conservative politics.
A fourth-generation Marylander, Ian lives in Severna Park with his wife and three children. He is a parishioner at St. Andrew by the Bay Catholic Church, a lacrosse coach, and a Cub Scout leader.
