Simon has been creating stories even before he could write. He writes fiction drama, documentary and concepts for corporate productions. Many of his short film scripts have been produced. As a teacher he also does a lot of script doctoring.
Simon is currently writing a feature film and a novel.
In his stories Simon feels comfortable in the world of the outcast, oppressed and extraordinary people. Because they don’t take the same life journey as ordinary people. However artistic, his stories will always have to be enjoyed by a wide audience.
Besides drama, Simon loves the suspense genre and fairytales for grown ups.
Simon composes symphonic music for visual productions. He likes to freely combine traditional symphonic arrangements with electronics, world, ethnic and popular rock instruments. He plays drums, percussion and keys.
For Simon music is an essential part of movie making and is inseparable from his directorial vision.
Simon does very little commisioned work as he focuses on film making. Simon has been composing from the age of 12 and has won multiple international awards.
