After several years spent
collecting post-graduate degrees in English Literature, International
Relations and Political Philosophy, Ian stumbled into the law and practiced
for a number of years as a commercial litigator for a large firm in London,
England. Appalled at the prospect of making submissions for the rest of his
life to gout-ridden, wormy old men, Ian returned to academia (where, of
course, judgement is only a possibility).
As a Teaching Assistant at UBC for two years 1988-1990, and
since 2005, at Capilano, teaching a range of first and second year
Ian has a particular interest in
Classical and Renaissance drama, as well as modern Russian and East European
As a student (particularly at UBC), Ian did a lot of acting.
He produced and directed West Side Story at Norwich City College in
1983 and Shakespeare's Twelfth Night at the West London Institute in
1985. Ian tries to maintain this interest, and he also plays the piano.
