Waking up in the late hours of the night to write down a song idea was common for many years of Ian's life, however playing an instrument and singing was a dream locked deep in a guarded heart. Coming from a very musically talented family, living in a small town in Alaska, and being known as an athlete only kept the thoughts of being able..."to measure up" artistically running through his mind constantly. This paralyzed any movement of letting God's creativity out of Ian for many years. It was not until coming home on his birthday in 2001 from work and finding a guitar on the bed with a note from his wife saying "God is telling you to do something you should do it!" that ignited the courage to move forward in all the Lord had for him.
Ian longs to convey the finished work of Christ and what that means for our identity as Christians in how we live day to day. Through his music he shares the messiness of his own spiritual life on the journey that God has taken him on already.
Ian is a passionate songwriter and worshipper who shares Christ wherever God takes him. Ian has the ability to welcome all into an atmosphere of grace by using humor and vulnerability. Ian currently resides in Phoenix, Az with his bride and three little boys.
