Ian grew up in southern New Jersey, a son of two multilingual high school teachers. From a young age Ian traveled the world, living abroad for months at a time. He began skateboarding in his teens, making skateboard videos with his friends. This learning process gave him a foundation to pursue a career in film.
He has worked in many facets of the film industry, understanding the importance of crew positions including grip, best boy, gaffer, clapper/loader, and 1st AC. His commitment to film has brought him to work on projects across the United States, Mexico and Europe.
