Chief Futurist

Considered one of the top voices in Web3 and the Metaverse, Ian helps break down complex topics into concepts that are easy to understand and execute against. As a world-class technologist, he specializes in bringing cutting-edge technologies to life so audiences can understand where the future of technology is going in a way that makes it actionable. He incorporates these technologies into his keynotes to create immersive experiences that don’t just educate but give the audience the feeling that they’re experiencing the technologies themselves.

Ian began his marketing career by accident after programming a server to send messages from his college dorm room in 2008 and he’s been working with emerging technologies ever since.
