Being interested in all things related to precision marksmanship from an early age, Ian fostered a career in the US Defense Industry, specializing in weapon, munition, armor, and sighting system design. Ian started shooting F-class in 2010 and, since then, has earned a seventh-place finish or better, individually, in four of the last five F-class US National Championships. He has broken a few US National Records along the way and has helped win gold medals while team shooting in the East Coast Nationals, the Southwest Nationals, the Canadian Nationals, and the US Nationals. Ian is currently training for the 2017 World F-Class Championship with the US Rifle Team. When not competing, Ian enjoys metal and woodworking, and building his own rifles. Ian currently lives in Madison, Wisconsin with his lovely and supportive wife, Beka, and works as a Senior Engineer for Vortex Optics.
