Aloha all, my name is Ian Swanson, hailing from Grand Rapids, Michigan, the land of Tip Top Deluxe Bar & Grill and Max's South Seas Hideaway. I am a former (short term) student at Tom Savini's Special Make Up Effects Program and an independent Talent Buyer & Event Producer walking along the path of my (late) brother, Jason Swason (Turtle Clan, Nottawaseppi Huron Band of the Potawatomi), Talent Buyer extraordinaire to 80's & 90's cultural underground music scenes within the community.

I am a recent addition to the brethren of the Order of The Golden Fez and as such I am working to bring together some momentous work for the community in the form of event production where I will seek to work with Cassandra Peterson, John Paragon, Paul Reubens, Danny Elfman, among many others, and hope to walk along the path of dual citizenship between Order of The Golden Fez and Fraternal Order of Moai to get there. I have brought together some notable and unique event productions in the past, and I am looking ahead to achieve some extraordinary feats in burlesque, cabaret, comedy, magic and variety shows the likes of Hollywood, Vegas & New York performances, that my community has never quite seen much content of except for it's representation in the media world of film and video.

Anyhow, that a bit about me and the path that I am walking towards. Also of note is I'm working to get back to my roots and thus I am striving to implement plans to open a retail shop that centers on Hollywood horror, luchador mascaras and the spectacle of illusion to compliment Tiki/ Exotica culture, and doubling as a non-profit for Special Make-Up FX through Stan Winston School of Character Arts.

Additionally, Polynesian culture is truly amazing and it's traditional spirit is a great wonder to behold, especially for a kid growing up and wanting to hang with his Anishinaabe brother and discovering the world of Polynesian wrestlers and Maori storytelling and worlds represented within the film industries.

I look forward to engaging with you and meeting you along the roads of the paths leading to the Moai.


Mahalo,
Ian Swanson
