My self-summary
Hey, I'm Ian. Not quite sure how to summarize myself without coming across as cliche. That being said, I'm a creative-minded and easy-going person. I don't take life too seriously but am very invested in my interests (see below). Finally decided to finish up school and get my BFA after traveling and spending a lot of time writing music. Since 2008 I've lived in Connecticut, Tennessee, Boca Raton, and San Francisco (which I love almost as much as New York).
What I’m doing with my life
I have recently moved from New York City to Winter Park, FL to study to get my MFA in film production at Full Sail University.I have also recently become a freelance screenwriter and will soon be producing an independent film for the first time. My goal is to become a full time director and screenwriter. I have been hired to write a script that is based on the civil war that is going on in the Congo (think the movie Blood Diamond but with a mineral called Coltan that is fueling the conflict in question) which I completed about a year ago. I have also recently started performing stand-up comedy (something that I put off for years because I was afraid of going on-stage and bombing, luckily, I have been doing well and have yet to do too bad). I also recently finished up my final year of school as a fine arts major. In addition, once I have the time, I am looking to finish up my first novel that I have been working on for the past two years and hope to have it published. I am also a musician and have started a musical duo with a friend of mine. Also, all that being said, I'm really the silliest guy ever, but for some reason I feel the need to mention that here. I sure hope you enjoy puns!
I’m really good at
Writing, Making people laugh, Guitar, Songwriting, Art, Having a good time, and Keeping an interesting conversation going.

Rap battles. I once served up season 1 Project Runway winner in a rap battle at a house party. He got angry and left, the end.

Starting dance parties at bars when no one is dancing.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everyday life is just funny to me. So I am constantly seeing the world as material for stand-up comedy. Also, I often wonder why it seems so hard for some people to be polite. A "please" and "thank you" can go a long way!
On a typical Friday night I am
Who knows, probably a long night of fun partying with friends!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I think I'm developing an unhealthy obsession with Ryan Gosling.
