Ian started skiing at a very young age. He competed in his first race at the age of 5. Even after his early start, Ian only participated on the Rochester Lourdes High School team for three years. During his high school years, he also qualified and competed in the junior national ski events several times. He graduated in 2014.

Ian currently attends the University of Northern Michigan. He is a junior and is majoring in Exercise Science. Will he be a future gym teacher? He is taking this semester off to focus on the current Olympic events.

Off the snow, Ian is just as active. He enjoys mountain biking, climbing and camping with his teammates. When the weather isn’t so fair, he also enjoys Ping-Pong and foosball.
