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 about the Pacific Northwest, the other is a history documentary based in Italy. Aside from filmmaking, I like to write & record original music and cover songs of artists who have influenced me.

I love being outdoors natural environments; hiking, kayaking, any sort of adventure.

I studied abroad in Orvieto, Italy for a semester in college 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
Filming/photographing I guess, creating and playing music, remembering my dreams, climbing trees, cooking, meditating, and random things like juggling, hacky-sacking, and other various nonsensical little tricks.
