Growing up in Southern California, Hunter graduated from Pepperdine University in 2019 with a Bachelor of Arts in International Studies (Political Science specialization) and a Bachelor of Arts in Hispanic Studies. Shortly after graduation, he moved from Los Angeles to Washington D.C. to begin working with Atlas Network as an Institute Relations and Programs Associate while participating in the Koch Associates Program. When he’s not working with the IR team and Atlas Network partners, Hunter can be found hiking, rooting for the Rams, or trying to find a beach on the East Coast that might resemble California.​
