Although Simon started his career by studying Molecular Genetics at University College London he spent much of his time studying and making music, both as composer and as a violinist/violist leading not only the orchestra of University College, but also Queen Mary College. Whilst at university he saw performances of his choral music take place at Koln, Worcester, Gloucester and Ely Cathedrals as well as his first orchestral piece 'Preludio' at the Thaxted Festival. After leaving university he worked first as a researcher and then a secondary school teacher, before teaching violin and viola for Staffordshire LEA. He finally left teaching to undertake postgraduate studies in Film Music Composition at the London College of Music. This was followed by 4 years at the National Film and TV School before Simon embarked on a career as a professional composer.

Simon’s work as a Film and TV composer has encompassed a wide variety of genres. In the field of Animation he is represented by films such as Blindscape for which he wrote (and conducted) the music, as well as being the sound editor/designer and supervising Dubbing Mixer. This film received both BAFTA and OSCAR NOMINATIONS for Best Short Animation Film. Other animation work includes Behind the couch a childrens TV series, and a series of 20 animations to poems for GCSE English.

In the realm of Drama, he wrote (and conducted) the music for the highly successful BBC/Tiger Aspect series of films Heroes and Villains as well as writing some music for the Ivor Novello Award Nominated score to The Wyvern Mystery.

In the Comedy field he can be represented by the BBC Wales film Everycloud starring Liz Frazer.

He has composed music for factual programs such as the controversial HORIZON "How to kill a human being" as well as having written music for such diverse topics as Wildlife documentaries and Food docu~dramas. The highly successful BBC series the Belief File represents some of Simon’s work as composer and Sound Designer in the Documentary Field.

Finally, he has written innovative scores for Feature Films combining vocal, electronic and orchestral elements a good example being his recent score to "The Tormented", whilst Cleanskin (Warner Brothers starring Sean Bean) shows his ability to write orchestral "action" music. The Blue Iguana (Starring OSCAR winner Sam Rockwell) shows him working in a black comedy enviroment, whilst Puritan (Starring David Soul, Nick Moran, Georgina Rylance) is a more mainstream film noir “Hollywood” style.

Simon has also written music for the stage, including the musical ‘The Sunlight King’ which was shortlisted for the Vivien Ellis Award and music for plays. Representative of his orchestral output is the Violin Concerto (as heard on Classic FM and which is also available on CD and available on iTunes) and representing his Choral output are works such as his Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis which have been performed in several of Britain’s cathedrals.

In the past, Simon has worked as an Orchestrator, Music Consultant and Music Technology Consultant, was the Senior Music Tutor at the National Film and Television School for 4 years as well as Course Director for Post Graduate Studies at the London College of Music and Media / Thames Valley University, and has lectured/tutored at various Universities and Film Schools, including Oxford University, The London Films School, and the London Film Academy.
