A qualified secondary school Science teacher, Ian has also performed as an actor, director, conductor, singer and musician in around a hundred shows over the last thirty years, and still plays several gigs a month. Since graduating, he has been involved in many areas of science communication and recently he developed demonstrations and props for the BBC show ‘Bang Goes the Theory’. Ian combines his love of science and performance as developer and presenter of Zombie Science. As well as acting the part of a "real-life" zombiologist, he has an in-depth understanding of the real science involved and is ready to answer audience questions with a scientific answer or an off-the-cuff humorous response. At the Green Man Festival in 2014, most of the audience had been to see him at the same event the previous year, which contributed to another packed event with a great response.
