Ian earned his BA in Molecular Biology from Humboldt State University (HSU '95). From there, he moved to Albuquerque, NM and joined an upstart environmental analysis laboratory. Ian worked his way up the ladder from bench chemist, to technical director, to assistant lab manager, and even dabbled in quality assurance as the QA/QC Officer as the lab established itself as the leading analytical lab in New Mexico. In 2015, Ian and his wife moved to her hometown of Norman, Oklahoma and Ian became the National Laboratory Director for a start up cannabis testing laboratory flying back and forth between Norman and the laboratory locations in Oregon and California.
