A Massachusetts native, his first word was “touchdown” while watching a Patriots game with his dad on television, so it’s only fitting that he followed the career path of sports reporting, a passion he he developed from a very young age.
From Marshfield, MA, he played football for the Rams, and played in the state championship game in all four of his high school years, finally winning it his senior year at Gillette Stadium. Coming full circle, he’s now seen on the sidelines at Gillette on Sundays.
Ian graduated from Emerson College, in Boston where he could always be found in the student newsroom or television studios. After working with EIV News, the Emerson Channel, and WEBN (which allowed him to cover MLB Spring Training while still in school), he got hands on experience that still helps him in his work today.
After graduating in 2014, Ian packed all his things into a small four-door sedan and moved to Corpus Christi, TX, where he worked as a Sports Reporter and Anchor for KIII-TV3. Working there for three years helped him discover the true importance of high school sports to a community (high school football in Texas is as big of a deal as they say it is!), as well as covering minor and major league baseball, and Division I college athletics. Some highlights include: covering the winningest coach in Texas high school football history, seeing the World Series champion Houston Astros be built through the minor league team in Corpus Christi, and covering the Texas A&M-Corpus Christi Islanders in back to back conference tournaments.
He returned to New England in 2017 and is now covering the teams and athletes he grew up watching, a dream come true. In his first few months, he covered Super Bowl LII and the Patriots’ dramatic season to reach it, the Red Sox ALDS, the Friars’ upsetting two top-ten teams in the nation, and a historic winning streak by the URI basketball team. There are many more amazing stories to come!
