Vouch for them.

Elliott Garlock
We worked together  •  Previously Co-Founder, Sotra. Previously Business Development Director, Raymor Industries and NanoIntegris Technologies. Cornell grad.
Ian is a remarkable autodidact. We've been friends since 2004 where we met in college, and I've watched Ian pick up a variety of skills and ... learn different industries. He is unusually resourceful and and intelligent and that's a powerful combination to get a lot done very quickly, very well. Ian put together a really nice website for Sotra when he and I were test piloting that idea. He had great ideas and contributions for branding, web design, and copy writing. When we were in college together he managed the Cornellian yearbook business and took a very good 80/20 approach to selling a lot of books. Even in his hobbies, he is meticulous. He's a great athlete and takes everything he does seriously from bicycle racing to sprint football.
