Hi. I'm Ian McKenzie,

an aspiring mad wizard working with people, code, art, and more.

This site is my little corner of the internet. A place to upload what I please, share words that 1 or 2 people might find useful, and to show off the things I'm working on. Topics on this website are most often related to art, design, entrepreneurship, marketing, software development, and schizophrenia. As my skills and interests grow, so will the amount of topics. If you'd like to chat for some reason, click the button below.

Here's what I'm actively working on...

Sales, Marketing, & Project Management
Logo for the Curious Markings Co.
Full Stack Dev, Mobile App Dev, Art, Design, & Social Management
Logo for the House of Bob Gaming Club
Full Stack Dev, Design, & Non-profit Management

By day, I assist fellow entrepreneurs in growing their business by helping them adapt to the increasingly digital world. By night, I work on Curious Markings, a collection of writing, gaming, and experiments based on hallucinations from my schizophrenia. On the weekends and when there's demand, I work on the website and integrations for the House of Bob Gaming Club, a group of chaps podcasting and creating in the field of pen & paper and board games.
