Ian lives in the woods outside Grand Marais without running water or electricity in a yurt he built himself, spending much of his time gathering wild foods, firewood and craft materials. He is inspired by traditional lifestyles and is always seeking to uncover the lost art of living off the land. Aside from yurts Ian makes black ash and birch bark baskets, birch bark canoes, and other utilitarian crafts. Ian is a former North House Folk School intern.
