A creator who works mostly in prose, code and sound but has been known to make stuff using wood, metal, water and electricity.
Ian is a creator who was born in London (UK) but now lives in Valencia (Spain) having recently moved from and sold the sailboat that had been his home for the past three years.
He is currently writing his second book, “About the Flow”, which together with his first book, “DJing to Dolphins”, documents his voyage away from Brexit Britain on his sailboat Kite. Though ostensibly a story about sailing, the books muse on subjects as diverse as fake news, philosophy, mathematics and taxation. Ian also writes software to support his prose writing efforts and blogs about diverse subjects.
In another guise he is known as the dj shageee who has a background in playing in London’s underground club scene including clubs such as Imaginarium, Wonderland, Planet Angel, Loop and Synergy. Ian also worked on the rigging and build of club and festival events. Here he has built decor and structures out of wood and metal.
Prior to his sailing adventures Ian spent 18 years working in technology for JP Morgan where he ended up as a Senior Information Architect. He spent much of this period working part time while co-parenting his four children and caring for his father.
Ian has two electronic books published in English. Both are tales of journeys that started life as a series of blogs. Both are published on bookdown here:
Both stories are due for imminent publication on Amazon Kindle, Apple iBooks and Google Books platforms in the very near future. There are plans to publish both stories in Spanish.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Ian is currently involved with running interactive online dance parties as part of Lockdown Lunacy.
In the past Ian has worked at the following events almost always in a volunteer capacity and normally involved in rigging and construction:
