Ian Sterry

Workplace Giving Associate


Ian Sterry is the newest member of our Advocacy team, having spent the last 10 years at OMSI as an outreach and events educator. In addition to teaching science to the community, he taught scientists how to speak to humans. Born into a Portland family of musicians and storytellers, Ian grew up as a “band geek” and shared that for him, “the arts are a source of joy, spiritual experience and connection to his family and community….to serve the public in helping them experience the arts and watch their transformation because of it would be an opportunity he would relish.” Ian is filling the role as Workplace Giving Associate, as Matt Carron has moved to Grants Program Specialist.
