About Ian James Halstead

Storytelling - through every medium - is worked into every facet of what I do with my time and energy. Delivering a memorable and effective Message is key.
Taking Direction very well, my voice notes and infers: Affirmation. Confidence. Hints of mystery and awe. Comfort. Fluidity. Class. Elegance. Desire. Humour. Relatability. Peace, and Wisdom.

A Stage Actor since 2016. A Musician and Performer. A Writer. An Instructor of 'Effective Communication' Skills courses for Trinity London College Syllabi.
With a message and a medium, I take great pride in being part of a team that chooses to deliver a specific 'moment' to a specific audience.
