After receiving his BA in Technical Theater, Ian Stewart spent several years as a roadie, with an abiding passion for History. In 2004 he went to work at Historic Huguenot Street as a Restoration Craftsman, it was at that time that he first became involved in PTN. He subsequently worked as a millwright/timberframer with Jim Kricker at Rondout Woodworking and as a Restoration Craftsman at Historic Hudson Valley. In 2011 he entered the Preservation Studies Program at Boston University. During that time he became involved with a project where he spearheaded the creation of a database and treatment plan for the 1400+ fragments of gravestones from 16 historic burying grounds which are owned by the city of Boston. This led him to the subject of his Master's Thesis, which is still in progress. In January of 2014 he founded New Netherland Timberframing and Preservation, a company focusing on many aspects of preservation work, including gravestone preservation.
