Simon was born in North London in March 1978, but grew up on the South Coast of England.

His love of storytelling and cinema has seen him explore various guises since graduating with a Film Studies (BA (Hons.)) degree in 1999. After bouts in telecine houses and production companies, then as a researcher and a camera assistant/clapper-loader on many commercial, music video and film shoots, he turned to writing.


As well as writing his own screenplays, he has been commissioned to rewrite several screenplays, by companies from London to Los Angeles. At the same time, he has also directed music videos, documentaries and short films.

'Boogie Man', a feature film he wrote and co-created with its director Andrew Morahan, is the first feature project of Simon's to go before the cameras. He has several other feature projects in various stages of development.
