Currently attending The University of British Columbia, Ian studies voice performance under Roelof Oostwoud. Ian's interest in choral music sparked at a young age encouraged by his mother, an elementary school music teacher. His choral experiences in his hometown London, Ontario, include serving as Assistant Artistic Director for Conspirato Chamber Singers, headlining for the Daejon Choral Festival in South Korea with Six Vocal Ensemble and Vocado, and nearly a decade singing with Amabile Boys and Men's Choirs.
At UBC, Ian has performed with the University Singers, UBC Chamber Choir, and UBC Men's Choir. In his first year, Ian helped pioneer Hussein Janmohamed's 'Leadership through Choral Music' session for the UBC Student Leadership Conference, winning 'Best Collaborative Workshop'. While living in Vancouver for the past three years, Ian has worked with various ensembles in Vancouver including the Vancouver Chamber Choir, Phoenix Chamber Choir, and music intima.
