My self-summary
My name is Ian and my initials are IAN. I am a documentary filmmaker and work as a camera operator/assistant on video and photo shoots.

I am working on two projects of my own, one of which is a nature and wildlife documentary, the other is a history documentary. Aside from filmmaking, I like to write & record original music and cover songs. My music style is a blend of genres from Folk-Rock-Alternative-Indie.

I love being outdoors in the natural world; hiking, kayaking, any sort of adventure.

I've studied abroad in Orvieto, Italy and can speak Italian semi-fluently. I love Italy and am always looking for an opportunity to go back!

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.

I spend a lot of time thinking about

On a typical Friday night I am
Working, filming, playing music, going out with friends... it all depends.
