Having started his career as a professionally touring musician and then a film editor, Ian brings a particular understanding of structure, music, pacing and emotion to his projects. He started touring the world in bands at an early age, performing at a wide range of venues: from punk rock parties in backyards and living rooms to major European Open Air Festivals.  In the past 10 years he has directed numerous music videos for Grammy-nominated international acts, created Emmy-nominated and award-winning films aired on VICE, ESPN, MTV & LOGO. He has also worked with top brands, ranging from BOSE and Fidelity to The Boston Celtics and Bank of America.

Currently Ian lives in Boston, MA with his wife and two young children where he gearing up for the release his new feature length documentary, “The Godfathers of Hardcore”, which is an intimate portrait of two of the most influential men in underground music, Roger Miret and Vinnie Stigma of the iconic New York hardcore punk rock band Agnostic Front.  The film is scheduled to premiere at the 2017 DOCNYC Festival on  November 11th, 2017 and has been on the festival circuit since.
