Nickname: I don’t really have a nickname, but sometimes people call me “E”, as if “Ian” wasn’t short enough.
Current Town: Philadelphia

First AT Job: Per diem girls’ lax tournament with NXT through Go4Ellis.

Best AT Moment: I get the most joy from educating patients about their particular injury and helping them feel at ease. There is a lot of uncertainty associated with sustaining an injury. What really makes me feel fulfilled is helping my patients understand what they’re dealing with, what they can expect, how I can help them, and how they can help themselves moving forward.
Quote/Lyric/Line That Sums Up Athletic Training For You: Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.
