As the COVID-19 pandemic unfolded, author Ian Miller realized that his extensive background in data management and analysis made him remarkably well suited to track the data behind the outbreak. He began using publicly available data to create charts as a clear alternative for those seeking accurate information and data instead of sensationalized news stories and political posturing. His work and analysis have been featured in numerous media outlets such as Fox News and City Journal, referenced in multiple books, and used by national politicians to evaluate and understand the potential impact of COVID-related policies. Ian also writes a popular Substack publication titled Unmasked. He graduated with a degree in Critical Studies from USC and resides in Southern California with his wife and Mini Bernedoodle.
