Ian delights in the tranquility of nature and the joy of food. Whether arm deep in muck harvesting lotus tubers or blissfully roaming the pine barrens in search of blueberries and hazelnuts, wild plants and the traditional methods of gathering, processing, and cooking them form the core of his interests. A lover of history, he has a passion for the place where traditional craft and contemporary sustainability meet. Originally from the Twin Cities, Ian has spent time as a builder, as a cook, as an arborist, and even as a 2019 North House Intern. Learn more about the internship program here.
