Ian loves solving problems and coming up with ideas. He wants to find that click, that magic moment, where he can see the possibilities and opportunities for smarter design. For him, a well-designed product not only elevates form and function, but connects on much deeper level. His passion for product design began when he was a teen, as his father battled cancer. Because his father couldn't sit up straight, Ian would try to help him drink water without choking—a seemingly simple task had become a challenge. Ever since, Ian has been looking for ways design can make an impact where you'd least expect it.
