My name is Ian. I am a former wildland fighter and most recently a McCall Smokejumper. I have always been passionate about relationships; I clearly remember the first time I asked a girl I was in love with to be my girlfriend... in the fifth grade. Intimate partnership has never been easy for me. My insecurities come alive, I can become very self conscious, I freeze or feel like running away, I blame it all on my partner or blame myself and put my tail between my legs in shame. Kind of intense, huh?
I became tired of the painful confusion so I decided to go to The Relationship School to learn about myself. It was time for me to take responsibility for the really uncomfortable reality of relationship I experienced. I always knew I wanted to be of service on a more personal level, too. I resigned from my 13 year firefighting career to pursue relationship coaching as well as committed, monogamous relationship and a future family to share with the love of my life.
A few of my friends asked me to officiate their weddings over the years and it finally all clicked for me in 2020; I am a modern day minister who caters to all religious, spiritual and non-religious couples. Whether you need extended support as you journey towards marriage and beyond or just the right person to highlight your unique bond on the day of your ceremony, my sense of service runs deep and it is my pleasure to offer a genuine space for you and your partner to be your most authentic selves.
It is my mission to leave a lasting legacy of love and I will be privileged to help you do the same.
