Ian is on the journey to becoming a graduate student. His research will document and analyze chimpanzee behavior in both a savannah and jungle environment, giving a look into how early hominids may have approached the two environments. The project will bring together media and science to further the conservation of great apes.
Ian grew up traveling with his parents, often in jungle environments, which fostered his great interest in nature. A keen observer he seeks to discover and document the “what” and “why” of animal behavior. Ian lives in Virginia with his lovely wife Kristin, where they are building their dream home.
