ABOUT

Hi, I'm Ian. I am a bearded sketch comedy writer/director & freelance film director/camera assistant. Born in Santa Barbara, CA, I studied film and directing at Emerson College in Boston and now live in Brooklyn, NY, where I work on movies, commercials and documentaries and loudly write jokes in a hookah bar.
​  
I believe in collaboration. I don’t think that any individual is smarter, funnier or more captivating than a collective of creative minds. I try to always surround myself with talented friends and creators who enjoy working together, because nothing I have ever made is as good as the work that we have created.

I am the co-founder of two collaborative companies: Dinner For One is a sketch comedy troupe and video production company in Brooklyn. We perform live sketch shows at the People's Improv Theater, in NYC. Proximity Theatre Company, is an experimental, movement-based dance/theatre company originally from Santa Barbara, CA, but currently relocating to New York. Since 2007 we have been producing company shows, teen workshops, and creativing radical pieces of theater, unlike anything you've ever seen.
 
I have over 5 years of experience in the film industry as a camera assistant, comedy director, editor, documentary cinematographer & theatrical lighting designer. Really all I want out of this life is to make awesome stuff with awesome people all the time. So lets make that happen.
