Ian Fo moved to Bristol Bay three years ago as a biologist with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game. In April he made a move he has wanted to make for a while, a move to self-employment. He left his job with ADF&G to be a barista at Tide Table Coffee, an artist, and a personal trainer. 

Ian Fo coaches Dillingham High School wrestler Jesse Noden, 15.
