“Marc-Ivan came highly recommended as a writer. From our first writers table meeting it was evident that Marc-Ivan not only has the funny bone, but is also a well of ideas, always striving to plus every draft. He contributed some very funny and witty scripts for ‘Dorg Van Dango’, episodes I am very proud of. He is a joy to work with and I can wholeheartedly recommend him.”

“I have known Marc-Ivan for many years, he’s a colleague and a friend. I often seek his input and advice on all things Hollywood/creative. He’s one of the most knowledgeable persons I know when it comes to film and literature. But beyond that, he simply knows how to get things done.”

“I have worked with Marc-Ivan as a creative collaborator many times, both in theatre and film. The process was always a joy and the fruits of our work culminated in numerous productions for the Dublin Fringe Festival, as well as touring productions to London. He has also written incredible work for film, radio, and art installations. His writing is funny, touching, and quirky, always underwritten by a very keen sense of dramaturgy bred of his sharp, cross-pollinating skills as a director and editor. Marc-Ivan brings a laconic, searing insight to his work and is unrelenting in his pursuit of excellence. The plays and films I have seen him create over all the years I’ve known him have always been deeply entertaining, thought-provoking, original, and full of unexpected twists and flourishes. He is a straight-talking, wise-ass, deep thinker who always makes me laugh till it hurts. I would jump at the chance to work with him again.”

“I have collaborated with Marc-Ivan on a couple of TV projects and would work with him again in a heartbeat. He’s very professional, a brilliant storyteller, never short of a joke or a new idea – and he even smells nice too.”

“Having collaborated with Marc-Ivan on several writing projects over the years, I can testify to his sharp wit and infectious sense of humour. Both of these characteristics make him a pleasure to work with. I’ve seen at first hand how easily he moves between disciplines, from writing to composing to directing, always driven by a very clear artistic vision. Whenever I need an outside opinion, or critique, on my own work, he is one of the first artists I contact; he always offers an incisive assessment and a valuable précis. Marc-Ivan has a light touch, but a firm grasp on the elements of story and character. I believe he would be a major addition to any writing project.”

“Marc-Ivan has many dynamic talents, and I have had the pleasure to work with him on several occasions. Most memorably for me, was as a voice actor under his direction for the New York Festivals award-winning, ‘Last Thoughts’, a radio play which he also wrote. His direction was energized, clear, and vibrant, while the writing was crisp and witty. It was a joy to create this important piece with him.”
