Favourite Quote:

“From quiet homes and first beginning, out to the undiscovered ends, there’s nothing worth the wear of winning, but laughter and the love of friends. Hilaire Belloc.”

Favourite Show: Sopranos and WestWing

Jason and Adam worked together on the W Hotel’s arrival to London’s Leicester Square, Away We Stay follows the romantic story of a photographer (played by Helena Christensen), who falls for a stranger she meets in a restaurant (David Gandy). Inspired by the iconic movie Blow Up, the film is directed by Edoardo Ponti and produced by Katrina.

Biggest Value Lesson: Humans are emotional creatures. My impression is that storytelling allows us to digest information more easily because it connects that information to emotions. … Storytelling is important because it is effective at teaching in a way that people can easily remember, and at helping people relate to one another.
