Ian has a career spanning over 30 years and has been the driving force behind much of D+D’s most recognizable work.
His belief — be brave, then never, ever compromise the vision.
Whether it’s the 2012 London Olympics Opening Ceremonies, celebrating a country’s birth for the UAE National Day Celebration, or The Emmys, Ian’s unifying thread is that he won’t accept “we can’t” as an answer. As Ian and Hamish have both said, “Once you have done the biggest event on the planet, there is nothing that can ever scare you again.”
Ian’s credits feature an incredible list of nations, leaders, musical artists, actors, and athletes, and have resulted in many awards. However, he says the most rewarding aspect for him has always been imagining and creating events from nothing and always trying to overdeliver on the initial promise.
