William Irons, Resident Associate Director of Production

William is a theater-artist, musician, and manager of creative production based in Brooklyn.

A proud member of Wooshed Collective, he has spent the last several years building upon his background in theater and a strong belief in collaboration, working with the best designers, fabricators and creative minds. A deft negotiator with a demonstrated track record of managing thrifty budgets, he is equally at home in the nascent stages of creative development and in the field leading projects as they come to life. In 2016 he and Gabriel Hainer Evansohn founded Iron Bloom Creative Production, a boutique design and production firm dedicated to interactive live experience.

In its nearly three years of existence, the company has seen steady growth, with projects ranging from the award-winning, record-setting, environmental production of Sweeney Todd at the Barrow Street theater--for which IBCP gutted the theater and transformed the space into a functional pie shop--to a number of high-profile music festivals from Outside Lands and Clusterfest to Bonnaroo and Electric Forest.

Prior to founding Iron Bloom, William was involved in the management and implementation of a number of high-profile projects for partners and clients around the country. From the fall of 2013 through the spring of 2014, he served as the Associate Production Manager for Variety Worldwide, working with Gabriel Evansohn to oversee the renovation of The Diamond Horseshoe, an historic venue in the bowels of NYC's Paramount Hotel. In 2014 and 2015, he served as the Lead Project & Production Manager at DKD, the design firm of renowned scenic designer David Korins. During his tenure with Korins, William co-managed (with Nathan V. Koch) the creative process and led the construction and implementation of Florian Café, Fireman Hospitality's latest trattoria on Park Avenue South; he also served as the manager of production and design for the inaugural run of Mariah Carey's sold-out Christmas concerts at the Beacon Theater.

William hails from the Bay Area and graduated from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts with a B.F.A. in Theater. He plays guitar and keys in pop singer/producer Momo Ishiguro's live band and is pleased to be in her stable of in-studio collaborators. In his spare time he writes, records and plays in music collaborativeclarence.
