Working with brands over the years, including setting up his own, has given Jason an incredible understanding of brand development, connection and experience. For many years now Jason has been working as a remote consultant, and therefore, has been used to relying on the online world to build projects. Back in 2018, Jason digged deeper in the world of Content Strategy to get an holistic approach to online connection.
These are a collection of creative projects Jason has worked on throughout the years, however they certainly do not tell the whole story of the many other projects and brand work Jason has been part of throughout the years.
Jason was responsible for the creation and brand development of CoverStar Experiences, leading to a fully functional company. Prior to Jason selling the company back in 2017, CoverStar became an award-winning company for customer service. CoverStar Experiences to this day provides a range of recording experiences and on-site entertainment for hen/stag parties, corporate events – including remote experiences.
Portfolio Example: This was a video created to promote the coverstar brand by creating a mini-tv mockumentary series based called grace & kiera.

HappyMe is an original collection of ‘bitesize’ stories with accompanying audio designed to promote positive messages to young children. Written in a combination of prose and poetry, the stories incorporate intriguing characters with engaging voices and interactive songs. Children can listen to the audio alone, follow along with the beautifully illustrated book, and learn to read the book aloud on their own.
Portfolio Example: This is a sample from the HappyMe collection. EVEN THOUGH the audiobooks have been available since 2014, The first physical book, The Panda Who Loves Bamboo, was released in 2020.
With A Twist was a weekly showcase with a loyalty system to reward both attendees and local unsigned artists. For the latter they could gain rewards such as free and discounted recording studio time, Also, enthusiastic and loyal audience members were rewarded with drinks offers. This was setup to support artists hosted in a local craft bar in Liverpool around the corner from Jason’s ex-recording studio, which created a tightnit community of regular people.
With A Twist Acoustic Night
For The Fans Live Sessions
2015 - 2016
Shortened to FTF, these live sessions were ‘stripped down’ live sets for the fans of artists. A space was provided FREE of charge and was a great way for the artist to raise funds via ticket sales, which were sold in advance and allocated to the artist and support act only. This project consisted of promoting the gig and selling the tickets. During this time, Jason also collaborted with worldwide organisation, Sofar Sounds to host intimate acoustic performances.
Portfolio Example: In November 2016 Crowded Scouse played a special intimate gig to 40 invited guests at Jason’s 7Suite Studio in Liverpool.
MyFriendsRoom is the new friendly way to travel. Rent travel accommodation from your friends network. Rent your place or spare room to your trusted friends and contacts. Connect with friends abroad and rekindle old friendships.

After falling in love with the Invisible Exhibition in Warsaw, this was one of Jason’s first immersive experience creations.
Paranormal Activity was created from an idea to bring interative theatre and escape room style activities to life as a Halloween special for English learners. It took place in a space completely transformed by Jason and his team at The Native Way.
Portfolio Example: Unfortunately it’s not possible to share much from the event as they were unfilmed FOR BOTH PRIVACY REASONS AND TO help students feel more relaxed during the experience. however, the introdutory trailer created for the students that they watched before embarking on the activity can be seen below.
Paranormal English Activity
Happy Birthday was a completely original story created by Jason to stimulate a ‘shock response’ from audiences by incorporating an in-person psychological and theatrical experience in the dark using 3D audio, but with a twist.
Again, created for English learners at immersive language space, the Native Way. This was a historical 3D audio recital with external sensory stimulation and an educational blind tasting to celebrate and educate students on the British tradition of pancake day.
The event included smell and movement around the particpants while there were blinded to simulate a higher imaginative state.
International Men's Day
Purely out of a passion for wellbeing and spreading awareness of men’s health, Jason created an immersive inner dialogue using 3D sound, which was shared on an entrepreneurial Facebook group. It wasn’t advertised, but Jason would like to pursue this idea further in the coming years.
Portfolio Example: This is the whole 3D recording as made available online.
Inspired by a recurring childhood nightmare, You Can’t See Me is an experiential and interactive micro-immersive experience that invites you into a fictional dream realm, simulating the very scene that preyed on my own fear of isolation, inhibition, vulnerability, and the unknown.
Created just for the Uprise Summit, participants were led down a dark path into a cabin in the middle of the Portuguese nature.
It used 3D sound and dynamic soundscapes at its core to offer my own artistic representation of my dream.
