Ian was raised in Allendale, Michigan, and has lived there his whole life. He loves the location; being a few minutes from Lake Michigan and downtown Grand Rapids in a small town is perfect. From an early age, he fell in love with video games and wanted to develop them. In pursuit of following his dream, he found Bizstream Academy and signed up to gain some coding experience. Ian loved the Academy so much that his passion changed to web development. In his spare time, Ian still plays video games.
