Ian grew up in West Wyalong, New South Wales. He is an experienced optometrist having graduated from the University of NSW over 30 years ago. After working for 2.5 years in private practice in Newcastle Ian moved to Tasmania. Whilst working in Launceston the opportunity arose to purchase the practice of Mr G. B. Lawrence in Devonport. The practice was originally upstairs in the Devonport Mall.

In 1989 the practice moved to its present location in Best Street. Ian enjoys all aspects of his work and is committed to improving optometry standards through continuing education. Since graduating Ian has completed a postgraduate course in ocular therapeutics through the State University of New York and is registered to prescribe therapeutic drugs in Australia. He is a member of Optometry Australia, Cornea and Contact Lens Society of Australia and ProVision.

Outside of work Ian enjoys running, fitness, travel and spending time with his wife and children.
