Ian Michael Giatti has worked in film, television and broadcast media on both sides of the camera.

A seasoned ministry leader with over a decade of experience teaching the Word of God for groups of all ages, Ian is deeply committed to evangelism and introducing others to Jesus Christ. He’s served as a Sunday School teacher, in ministry leadership, and has led worship and Bible studies for inmates and staff at Los Angeles County jails.

He’s also a versatile talent in digital media, with nearly two decades spent in radio and TV broadcast journalism, including producing and managing digital and social media content in North America’s second-largest market.

Since the age of 6, Ian has appeared as an actor in several films, TV shows, and commercials. He’s best known for movie roles in “The Great Outdoors” (1988) and “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” (1985) and most recently on TV’s “SEAL Team” (2017), 

But it wasn’t until he underwent a life-altering medical emergency and the mental health crisis that ensued when Ian ultimately abandoned his lifelong atheist worldview and put his faith in Christ alone – a moment that changed everything.

An author on both sides of his conversion, Ian has contributed to several books on faith and other topics, including “SOCIAL INJUSTICE”. He released his latest work, “BACKWARDS DAD” in early 2022.

In 2007, he married Susan, the love and inspiration of his life. They have four amazing kids.
