Born and raised in Indianapolis Indiana, Ian is currently a Junior in the College of Agriculture of Purdue University. After receiving a Bachelor’s degree in Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences (his major), Ian plans on attending Law school (location currently undecided) with a concentration in Environmental Law. From there, Ian hopes to find employment with either environmental non-profit organizations in Indiana, Indiana Environmental Agencies, Private or Public Law offices.
Ian enjoys climbing, basketball, the company of his family and friends and the outdoors. He was drawn to the SCA on the advice of a friend and classmate whom had completed a trail crew internship in the summer of 2009. In addition to this, his numerous years in the Boy Scouts of America (and the attainment of his Eagle Scout award) have driven him to remain active in the field of conservation. Ian’s hopes for this internship are to grow both mentally and physically from the rigors of trail work and to develop a more comprehensive and “wise use” conservation mind set.
