Simon has split his career between the arts and the corporate sector. He has been an Executive Communications Coach for over two decades, a role that has given him unique access to a variety of fields and industries, much of which makes its way into his writing. He spent twenty years working as an actor, director, playwright and theatre producer in Toronto. After leaving the city, he has tried to spend as much time as possible writing and making pottery. He lives in Creemore with his two children.
