In April 2000, motivated by a desire to improve conditions for bicycle commuters and kids being able to walk to school, Ian co-founded the PedNet Coalition. Under his leadership, PedNet built a local membership base that now numbers more than 7,000 and achieved important local policy changes including the adoption of multi-modal street design standards, the first in Missouri.

Inspired to serve as an elected leader, Ian resigned as PedNet’s Executive Director in 2012 and now serves on the City Council.

Ian is a board member of America Walks and a member of the Safe Routes to School National Partnership Steering Committee.
