Hello, my name is Ian! I grew up in North Carolina, but I have spent some quality time in South America, Arizona, and Oregon for the past few years. During which I have developed a huge passion for conservation and getting people into the outdoors. Overall, I look for any excuse to get outside whether it’s trail running, climbing, or just about anything that lets me play in the dirt. Sharing my love of the outdoors is what brought me to TEENS, Inc. and I hope to bring this passion to the youth that we work with through our outdoor leadership programming through climbing, backpacking, and any way to play outside!
