Ian has lived in the Pacific Northwest his entire life. Following his undergraduate studies at the University of Washington, Ian spent several years working for a major insurance carrier as a subrogation adjuster, liability adjuster, and liability supervisor. Afterward, he attended and graduated magna cum laude from Seattle University School of Law. During law school, he was a member of Alpha Sigma Nu, Jesuit Honor Society, and an Article Editor for the Seattle Journal for Social Justice.
In his free time, Ian enjoys staying active: hiking, playing basketball, going to the gym, and working on his abysmal golf game. He also enjoys spending time with his wife, family, friends, and two Spaniels. Ian and his wife recently relocated to Burien, Washington, and have been enjoying exploring local eateries and shops.
