"A wise man once said that all human activity is a form of play. And the highest form of play is the search for Truth, Beauty and Love. What more is needed?"
Ian is happiest when he is following that search and he has found many fascinating distractions along the way. He studied Theoretical Physics at Edinburgh before completing a PhD in Complex Systems at Manchester University where he was heavily involved in the music scene there as a sound engineer and gig promoter as well as playing on stage with the likes of Daniel Johnson and Neva Dinova.
He helped found a digital agency - OH Digital - before moving to London and becoming an independent app developer and entrepreneur jumping head first into projects that take his interest. Among others he has helped create high profile apps for Christie’s, Formula One and the Olympics and co-founded a startup - Myriada - focused on the harnessing of collective intelligence.
He has a keen interest in the exploration of consciousness and the emergence of collective thought and behaviour.
