Ian started his career in theatre as an actor. After graduating from East 15 Acting School, Ian worked successfully in the business for 12 years, and spent three of those years working in the USA.
Once back in London, Ian started learning BSL and became the Social Group Co-ordinator at Stage Text as a volunteer which gave him the opportunity to link his passion for theatre and the arts, with accessibility for deaf and hard of hearing audiences.
During his time working at Sadler’s Wells Theatre, Ian had the opportunity to utilise his skills in Sign Language where his passion for diversity in the arts grew. Ian joined the Deafinitely Theatre team as the Administration Assistant in early 2015 and becoming Project Manager a few months later.
