Ian is a homegrown Portland team member, attending Benson Polytechnic where he majored in radio communications. Ian utilized this exposure to public speaking to further his career in the Portland Environmental Education community. After a fulfilling and successful 10 years working for organizations such as Multnomah County Outdoor School, Portland Parks & Recreation, and The Friends of Tryon Creek, he decided it was time for a change. Starting as a laborer with the Siteworks team in early 2016, he has quickly worked his way up, learning technical skills and exhibited reliable decision making. His work ethic and ability to learn and execute quickly show great promise for his future with Siteworks. When Ian isn't building apartments, remodeling restaurants, or restoring Portland’s older building stock, he and his wife Thea can be found camping, hiking, fishing, and climbing around the Pacific Northwest.
