Hello. 

I'm Simon...

I am a director living and working in London. I have just completed my third short film Contractor 014352, starring Johnny Flynn (Genius, Lovesick, Song One) and Daniel Ings (Lovesick and The Crown).

My first short The Elevator Pitch opened The London Short Film Festival 2014, received a Vimeo Staff Pick and saw me nominated for the IMdB New Filmmaker Award. It was also a Finalist of 2014's Sundance London Short Film Competition (alongside my second short film Red Onions).

As a freelancer, I have directed content for the BBC, The Sunday Times, Google and campaign groups Hope Not Hate and SumOfUs.  I have also directed music videos for major labels including Universal-Polydor and Transgressive.

Additionally, I create and direct live performances that place an emphasis on immersion, interactivity and community. I have been commissioned by Southwark and Hackney Councils, Turner Contemporary, National Portrait Gallery, Create Festival and Somerset House. I have also been assistant director on shows at The Old Vic, National Theatre Studio and Hampstead Theatre.
