Ian's Bio

Ian graduated cum laude from Yale University with a bachelor’s degree in humanities and theater studies and earned his MFA in acting from the University of California, San Diego. Ian started working as a professional actor while he was still an undergraduate student at Yale, where he was nominated for the Sudler Prize in the Arts. Since then, he has had the opportunity to work nationally and internationally as an actor, producer, and director in television, film, and theater. In fact, Ian garnered a nomination for the Joseph Jefferson Award for best leading actor in a play in the Chicago area for his performance in the Goodman Theatre production of A View From the Bridge.
Ian’s introduction to teaching and tutoring began on a high-school tour of Romeo and Juliet during which he taught Shakespeare and stage combat seminars. Over the course of his professional career as an actor, he has taught acting, theater history, and public speaking at the college level and has led seminars for high school students. Ian also coaches students and executives in public speaking and interviewing. When asked about his approach to working with students, Ian seeks to meet students where they are. “If learning something is a journey together, I am there to help read the map, but where we go is up to them,” Ian says. He believes that students “often know (or can figure out) much more than I can simply tell them,” so tends to rely on a variety of questioning techniques.
During his high school years, Ian swam and played basketball and water polo. He continued to play water polo at the collegiate level. These days, Ian enjoys hiking and running in the woods along with teaching his rescue dog to catch a Frisbee. Fun fact: Ian is an excellent body-surfer.
