In 2000, English-born Ian married and moved to Australia. When the marriage dissolved several years later, Ian made international headlines when he sold his”entire life” on eBay in 2008.
He followed up with a travel adventure, wandering the world for a period of 100 weeks, armed with a bucket list of 100 goals.
At the end of his journey he settled in Canada for a while, then using Walt Disney’s money from the purchase of the film rights to his book “A Life Sold”, Ian bought a small Caribbean island off the coast of Panama. It was while living here that he met his partner Vanessa.
