About Ian

Hello and thanks for stopping by here!

I’m passionate about teaching and turning the techno-babble of social media, marketing, and the internet into plain English.

Rather unintentionally, I've begun to be called The Tools Guy, often speaking at conferences around the world on the topic of social media and marketing tools.

I trained as a professional singer at the Royal Northern College of Music. I still sing today and teach at the Junior RNCM. You can listen to me singing on my personal SoundCloud page.

I'm a partner for the internet solutions company, Select Performers which I co-founded back in 2003 with my dad, Tom Gray.

I'm a husband and dad to two lovely and lively kids and live near Manchester in the UK.

I have a very wide musical taste from Opera to electronica, baroque to bluegrass and choral music to jazz. I love good food (Indian in particular), wine, single malt whisky and quality tea and coffee.

I love travelling and exploring new places.
