Born and educated in Christchurch, Ian has lived and worked in the South Island for many years. With more than 17 years’ experience guiding visitors around the region, Ian has extensive knowledge and experience of the high country areas of North and South Canterbury, Marlborough and Central Otago.

As well as touring private clients, Ian has been a guide on hunting experiences throughout the South Island, Australia and the USA.

The Lakes District region of Central Otago inspires Ian with its ever-changing display of beauty and the challenges of exploring the region’s gems.

“Within a short distance you can be on a high, remote mountain range, then find yourself enjoying the many vineyards before heading back to the vibrant townships to savour the many cafes, restaurants and shopping precincts,” Ian says.

Ian is passionate about Queenstown Guided Expeditions and believes in the company’s ability to provide a truly unique, customised service that delivers an experience you’ll remember for years to come.
