Simon trained as a film maker, digital artist and animator with a passion for pantomime. Since graduating from Royal Holloway, Simon has shot music videos for Boyzone, designed animated sets for shows in Dubai and around the world, launched internet TV channels, created fitness DVDs, animated for Comedy Central, won a Royal Television Society Award for his short film 'Pantomime', developed iPhone apps, and designed a Snapchat filter for Sevenoaks (career highlight). After an uninspiring stint as a runner on ‘Supermarket Sweep’ Simon teamed up with Jamie to produce pantomime over ten years ago.
Simon produces all of the graphic design, film, online content and animations for Sevenoaks panto, the first pantomime in the country to be fully animated.
Aside from being a media geek Simon is the Director of the Stag Youth Theatre, and has enjoyed writing and directing numerous productions and films over the last five years. Last year the youth company celebrated its tenth birthday, and this year SYT is taking part in the National Theatre Connections project.
