Howdy, I’m Ian.
I’m an agency creative director, emergency management practitioner, and pilot based in Washington D.C.
In addition to my creative director work at the global content marketing firm Brafton, I volunteer in Government Operations for the Red Cross; responding to everyday disasters like home fires and deploying nationwide to support large incidents. I’m a recent graduate of Georgetown University’s Emergency Management master’s program and a member of Disaster Researchers for Justice.
Previously I worked with Rhode Island’s Emergency Management Agency as an ESF-6 (Mass Care Coordinator) in the State Emergency Operations Center.
I’ve worked at agencies and my own consultancy to create videos for major brands you’ve heard of and global enterprises you probably haven’t. I also had a blast leading global video marketing at Brightcove, the tech company behind many of the biggest video services on the internet.
Before all that I worked in television production for networks like ESPN, NBC, Fox Sports, and A&E. I also briefly worked on a show for Verizon’s failed Go90 which was strange. Sadly no Quibi shows as that wasn’t a thing back then.
For fun, I fly airplanes and travel and take a lot of photos along the way. If you’d like to get in touch, please reach out via Twitter.
