A passion for the morality of free market economics was ignited in Quinn Treleven when he researched and wrote a thesis paper on the subject during his senior year of high school. Now pursuing majors in Political Science and Economics/Finance at Olivet Nazarene University near Chicago, Illinois, Quinn is preparing himself for a vocation in free market advocacy. Quinn supplements his studies by reading classic primary sources written by Hayek, Menger, Hazlitt, Friedman, and Mises. He also follows Cato and National Review Online. In June 2010, Quinn was honored to attend FEE’s “Introduction to Austrian Economics,” where his understanding of free market philosophy was deepened beyond his expectations. In the second semester of 2011-12, Quinn participated in a study abroad program with a business emphasis at Xiamen University, China, where in addition to language, culture and history, he studied Chinese business, ending the semester with an internship for a manufacturer based in Xiamen. Quinn spent his 2012 summer volunteering on the campaign of a GOP candidate for the U.S. Senate and participating in FEE’s “Communicating Liberty” seminar. An unashamed Star Wars fanatic, Quinn enjoys rock music, movies, hiking and rock climbing.
