Hello, I'm Ian Cleary.
(he/him/his)

I enjoy playing underwater hockey (It’s Hockey, But Underwater), hiking, web development, and time with my family and friends. I work as satellite systems design engineer who specializes in radio frequency (RF) design and verification, electronic design, and data analysis.
