Ian Farrell

Board Treasurer

ianA lifelong lover of numbers, Ian joined Zeno’s board in 2014 and brings a strong passion for Zeno’s mission. Ian has worked in the banking industry for 15 years and is currently a Branch Manager at Umpqua. No stranger to volunteering, Ian has spent countless hours with Junior Achievement and DECCA, and has volunteered at nearly every MathFest since Zeno’s beginnings.

Growing up with a parent as an educator, Ian acknowledges how he had all the opportunities in life to succeed. He’s thrilled to give back and engage kids in the joys of math, the same way he was at a young age. Ian has several math teachers to thank from his childhood but it’s Miss McTaggary from 2nd grade that really set him on a path to succeed. Noticing that the subject came easily to Ian, Miss McTaggary made sure Ian was challenged while still showcasing how fun math could be.

If you ever need to find Ian, you’re most likely to spot him on a golf course or tasting at his favorite winery, Cave B. He’s also been known to tell math jokes to anyone who will listen. His favorite? I’ll do algebra, I’ll do trig, and I’ll even do statistics, but graphing is where I draw the line!
