Personal Summary

Hi y'all, my name is Hunter and I'm from Mississippi!  I graduated from The Universtiy of Southern Mississippi in 2018 with a B.A. in History.  A lot of my research in undergrad focused on the history of Russia and the history of Mississippi.  I'm here at the University of Montana to research under Dr. Volk.  I'm interested in politics and have worked on numerous political campaigns throughout the past five years as well as worked in Washington D.C. for a brief time.  I like to travel in my free time and currently have a goal of visiting all fifty states by the time I'm thirty.  If y'all ever need anything from me feel free to shoot me an email.
