Ian Boddy is an Audio Engineer at the Pirate Group in Toronto, Ontario. He is extremely passionate about sound and music, and the intimate and powerful role it plays in all our lives. Born and raised in the city, he has experienced life from a myriad of perspectives—caregiver, groundskeeper, cook, musician, counsellor, security—and has been called the Second Greatest Tiger Wrestler despite not having wrestled any actual tigers.* Ian recently started another big job—being a dad—which means he can wear socks with sandals anytime he wants, fuss over the thermostat and tuck his polos into his cargo shorts and nobody can say anything.
*Arguably still a perfect record.
