Hi, I'm Ian. I am currently a Software Development Engineer for Amazon. I work in the selling partner services organization developing analytics features for our vendors on Amazon.com. I used to work for TripAdvisor, developing full stack features for the home page and the profile pages. I was deeply involved in the relaunch of TripAdvisor in 2018 which included many new social features.

Outside of work, I play the guitar, snowboard and go on backpacking trips around the world. During college, I was also a part of the Tufts Quidditch team. You can find my contact information on the left.
