At Moran’s, Ian is responsible for coordinating various inventory, transportation, database, and IT projects and events throughout the company. Ensuring that the processes run smoothly and efficiently so that our team and our clients receive the excellent service that John Moran Auctioneers is known for.
Ian comes to Moran’s with a background in gallery management, communications, and e-commerce website design. Most recently, Ian was the Assistant Director for MASH gallery, a contemporary art gallery in downtown Los Angeles where he single-handedly ran the day-to-day operations. Prior to that, Ian held a position as Gallery Curator for Court Tree Gallery in New York where he organized numerous pop-up exhibitions. Holding a BA from Goucher College where he double-majored in French and Business, Ian spent time working in a Paris design firm and is fluent in French.
Deciding to pack his bags, buy a car, and head west, Ian settled in Los Angeles.
As a relative newcomer to the California landscape, Ian spends many of his weekends exploring the wide-open spaces and high elevations of the California landscape while camping. As a mixed media artist himself, working in pyrography and spray paint, he has an affinity toward the complex artworks that pass through his hands daily.
