About Ian

Howdy, I’m Ian. I’m a traveler, hopeless video nerd, amateur pilot and disaster management enthusiast. Perhaps more relevant to you, I’m a video marketing strategist working in Boston.

I help brands and creatives make better marketing videos. I’ve worked at agencies, production houses, and my own consultancy to create video for brands like Ford, Nike, Birchbox, Booking.com, The American Red Cross, and more.

I’ve also worked in television production for networks like ESPN, NBC, Fox Sports, Go90, and A&E. Today, I lead the in-house video team at Brightcove, the most powerful platform for video marketers and content creators.

While being creative all by myself is fine, building and optimizing high performing video teams is why I get out of bed these days.

Currently, I lead the live action and animation teams as the video Creative Director at Brafton, a global full service content marketing agency.
