John D Hays

Alumnus, Joint J.D./M.S., ARPC

Hello, my name is John Hays and I am a joint JD/MS (IDEV) 2014 alumnus. I grew up in the Memphis area and studied at Vanderbilt University where I majored in Economics and Spanish. My post-college career took an unusual turn when I made the decision to temporarily move to Argentina and play online poker professionally. Unlike many new graduates with an Economics degree, I was able to directly apply, on a daily basis, Game Theory, Statistics, and Behavioral Economics in my new trade.  What was initially a hobby in college proved to cover my expenses in a post-crisis Argentina.
