He went on to work for a newspaper in Manchester, England, learning his craft under the guidance of his editor David Taylor who had previously worked as an editor for The Times and Daily Mirror on Fleet Street, London.
In addition to direct engagement with print, radio, and television media corporations Ian has worked on in-house communications and content for a range of commercial clients, NGOs and 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations including the United Nations. He also received a BSC (Hons) degree in Psychology from Manchester Metropolitan University.
During his time working within the UK drone industry his content, and views were used for input to politicians, digital media, drone manufacturers such as DJI, Newcastle University, National Police Air Service, as well as being a subject matter expert for the industry publication, Police Aviation News.
His content has been used both internationally and behind closed doors for briefings, training law enforcement, strategizing approaches to regulators, media engagement, and at times been subject to the UK Offical Secrets Act, and commercial NDAs.
His wide-ranging background, especially having been involved with the drone industry during its time of drawing an increased focus from regulators and law enforcement, places him in a unique position to offer clients within the cryptocurrency space unparalleled guidance and varied content to help achieve their strategic aims for growth, education, adoption, and compliance, ensuring their message remains intact and effective whether communicating to the public, media, or politicians.
