Simon is an established professional and experienced live theatre performer with a particular focus on movement. Emerging from 4 years of formal contemporary dance training, his interests quickly moved toward physical theatre and object manipulation, before expanding further to incorporate skills in devised and scripted theatre, puppetry, building characters, music, voice/song, and clowning.

Simon was born and raised in rural

Essex where he developed a strong natural talent for music which led to an inevitable career in the performing arts, calling London home for many years. For 3 years he lived and worked in Shanghai, before returning to London where he resides today.
