Ian joined Nelson Byrd Woltz in 2013. He earned his Bachelor of Art and Design degree at North Carolina State University in 2006 and his Master of Landscape Architecture degree from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2011. While studying at the Galapagos Academic Institute of the Arts and Sciences in Galapagos, Ecuador, he was compelled to study the rocky interface of human industry and biological conservation, pursuing this intellectual thread with a Master of Landscape Architecture. Since moving to New York, Ian has worked in design and fabrication, with projects revolving around the cultural integration and infrastructure of urban ecology.
