Ian McKenzie began his professional career as a retail cashier and retail manager, working in the industry for 10 years. This gave him 10 years of conversational experience to step out of his nerdy hermit shell and communicate like a rather pleasant and personable human being. There are still some oddities, however, such as speaking about himself in the third person when writing a bio on a website.
After retiring from retail, Ian enrolled at North Island College to learn software development and graphic design. He graduated with honors and had the college asking themselves, "How can we create more students like him?" During his time at North Island College, he created a tech startup for an application called Stridr and became the first college student for Innovation Island to invite into the BC Venture Acceleration Program.
Ian has been a long-time hobbyist writer with his work recently breaking into the mainstream as a contributor to The Mighty. Ian began focusing full-time on Objektiv Digital after a thorough exploration of his art project Curious Markings where he created an interactive E-commerce website with mini-games, drop-shipping merchandise, and a bunch of weird and quirky features. This website technology served as the database and back-end for the Curious Markings app on the Google Play and Apple App Store.
