Ian was one of the first Principals to join the Helen O’Grady Drama Academy when it was first introduced into the UK in 1994 and is delighted to be celebrating 22 years with the organisation.

His interest in drama goes back to when he was a teenager, watching shows performed by the old boys’ drama society at his school. He joined the group as soon as he left university and has never stopped acting and directing since then, including some occasional work as a professional actor.

His degree in French and German, gained at the University of Salford, followed by a P.G.C.E. from Goldsmiths College, London, led him to teach the languages in a senior school for some years. Then Ian saw an advert in his local paper and it led to him: “….finding a job to which I was perfectly suited. It allows me to live my life exactly as I like and I love being able to help so many children develop and gain confidence. I have watched so many, many children grow in self-esteem. It is amazing seeing those who can barely speak when they arrive, later performing confidently on stage,” Ian says.
