ABOUT

Hi, I'm Ian. I am a bearded sketch comedy writer/ director & freelance film director/camera assistant. I was born in Santa Barbara, CA, I studied film and directing at Emerson College in Boston and now I live in Brooklyn, NY, where I work on movies, commercials, music videos & documentaries and loudly write jokes in a hookah bar.
​  
I believe in collaboration. I don’t think that any individual is smarter or funnier than a collective of creative minds. I try to always surround myself with talented friends and creators because I've never made anything as good as  what we have created.

We perform monthly live sketch shows at the People's Improv Theater, in NYC. Proximity Theatre Company, is an experimental, movement-based dance/theatre company from Santa Barbara, CA, Since 2007 we have been producing company shows, teen workshops, and creativing radical pieces of theater, unlike anything you've ever seen.
