Ian H Powell

My friends call me ‘iam’ (sounds like liam): /ɪːʲəm/

I like to solve problems and I love helping people…

Known for my ingenious ideas, I have the capacity to find efficient, creative solutions to complex issues.

I frequently do this in a few ways:

  • Handyman – practical jobs, fixing things.
  • Mentor – supporting young people.
  • Mediator – helping to improve relationships.
  • Teacher – sharing my passion for learning.

Variety is the spice of life… and I feel inspired by different challenges at different times: physical; mental; social and emotional.

I’m also a self-published author, artist and musician… my work is more an act of play… although it’s usually steeped in meaning, it’s rare when I produce something which is purely aesthetic.

The satisfaction I find in helping to solve other people’s problems is immense. I was taught that “if a job’s worth doing, it’s worth doing properly”.

I love to be effective.

“Jack of all trades… master of none.” (Except one). 😉
