Originally from San Diego California, Ian started swimming at the age of 3. Naturally, with a mother for a swim coach his time in the water began early. Since then Ian has competed for various Southern California swim teams, played water polo for the Nationally Renowned Shores Water Polo Club and played NCAA water polo for UCSC.
His professional coaching career began in 2002 when he started a swim instruction business in San Diego. Over the last 9 years he has continuously coached swimming and water polo for a variety of age groups and skill levels. He is extremely excited to join SCAM as an assistant coach.
When Ian is not is the water he can be found teaching Earth Science at Claremont Middle School.
