About Ian

I am a multi-disciplinary artist that combines media to create dynamic stories. I am a writer for Men’s Journal Magazine, a professional photographer, videographer for commercial and documentary works, and all-around creator. I was born in Oregon, grew up on a sailboat in central America until I was eleven, built a house with my father in Key West, and eventually attended Vassar College. Today my passion for travel, adventure, and learning continues to drive my life and work. I am also a member of The Life Aesthetic creative collaboration network, the founder of the I Love You Letter video art project, and Director of the feature documentary film, 'The Narwhal's Wake.' I’m based out of Los Angeles, CA and split my time infinitesimally around the world.
