My self-summary
My name is Ian and my initials are IAN. I am a wildlife documentarian, you can see some of what I've filmed on my website-

I also write and record music, you can listen to some on soundcloud-

I am continuing to work on studio shoots for commercials, music videos, short narratives and whatever projects come my way. Aside from filmmaking, I like to write & record original music and cover songs. My music style varies from Folk-Rock-Alternative-Indie and more.

I love being out in nature, hiking, kayaking, any sort of adventure outdoors.

I'm 50% Italian and studied Italian for 3 years before I went and studied abroad in a small town in Umbria called Orvieto. I love Italy and always want to go back as soon as I leave!

I am a kind and gentle soul; I seek to spread love, happiness, inspiration, imagination, adventure and appreciation!
What I’m doing with my life
Working on film shoots and taking time to film and put together wildlife documentaries. I have a short documentary on Northern Elephant Seals that recently won for Best Short Film in an international film festival in Finland!

I want to travel the world and capture striking visuals of the different cultures, animals and natural environments.
I’m really good at
Patience, exploring, filming wildlife, creating and playing music, remembering my dreams, climbing trees, cooking, recycling, meditating, learning random things like juggling, hacky-sacking, and other various nonsensical little tricks.
The first things people usually notice about me
Dreadlocks? And then probably my eyes, my smile, dimples :D
