Ian Hansen

Ian Hansen is a law student living in Hyde Park on Chicago’s South Side who joined the VFTB writing team in December of 2016. His family moved around growing up, but he spent the bulk of his childhood in Chicago (Edgewater) and Duluth, Minnesota. Aside from the Cubs, Ian enjoys biking the city, listening to podcasts, speaking Spanish, and watching Survivor.

Ian is a fourth-generation Cubs fan. His parents took him to his first game in 1997: a 4-1 loss to the Dodgers in which Chan Ho Park baffled the Cubs over 8 innings.
