Born in Karlsruhe in 1987, grew up and graduated from high school in 2006. After several years as a best boy and head lighting director in feature films and commercials, Simon learned his directing craft at the HFF Munich and successfully graduated (student Oscar) with the medium-length film ADISA.
During his training, Simon realised various short films and commercials and is always particularly in demand when not only technology and creativity have to merge, but stories have to be told with humour and emotion.
