As a full-time production assistant at Committee Films, Ian frequently has to get weird. On any given day you can find him… anywhere. From keeping production materials organized and ready to working on any number of sets to loading and unloading the many and strange necessities of TV production from a box truck – he does it all. In a recent development he’s also developed into a development role, keeping scripts for new projects nice and crispy, updating and tracking projects, and doing research – the ever-present partner of development after all. A true team player here and on the ice – he was also a hockey goalie in an earlier life. Sort of similar duties in a way. Nothing gets by him.
Ian graduated from the University of St. Thomas with a double major in Digital Media Studies and Film Studies. He was born a fraternal twin so it seems like this double thing comes naturally to him. At St. Thomas he was also president of the Film Society and spent his free time analyzing films and editing various projects. What can we say? He’s a consistent guy, which probably explains why he’s also a fantastic bartender with a deep interest in mixology when he’s not working at Committee. This is a help to all of us after a long hard day of filming as well. We call that a win-win in the biz.
Ian was born in Brainerd, MN, which you probably guessed due to the hockey. During his life he’s moved upwards of 10 times – definitely NOT because he’s on the run from Johnny Law – but currently lives in Minneapolis, which Is quite lucky for us. The commute from Brainerd would be daunting.
