Howdy, I’m Ian.
I’m an Emergency Management professional based in Rhode Island and a graduate student (MS Emergency and Disaster Management) at Georgetown University.
I’m a Public Affairs volunteer for the Red Cross, responding to everyday disasters like home fires and deploying nationwide to large incidents. Through a partnership with the Red Cross, I also work with Rhode Island’s Emergency Management Agency as an ESF-6 (Mass Care Coordinator) in the State Emergency Operations Center.
In a previous life, I was a video marketing Creative Director and 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.
