Ian has been featured on TV for his work on the restoration of a Grade 2 listed Manor House in Wales, along with numerous magazine articles documenting his vast experience within the residential and leisure development industry. His earlier years as a chorister at Sherborne Abbey and a recipient of the Blue Ribbon medal from the Royal School of Church Music, as well as being a Campanologist, gave no clue to his highly professional skills that would lead to him to become a much respected business man.
