Simon was born in Melbourne in the 80’s but has lived in Canberra for more than 25 years, making him a local.
His background is largely media-based, having worked as a journalist in print, radio and TV before moving into communications at ANU in 2013.
In November 2016, Simon moved into a new role as Internal Communications Coordinator where he writes for a range of ANU publications including On Campus. He also contributes regularly to the University’s quarterly magazine ANU Reporter.
When he’s not hunting down stories or helping to organise internal events such as the ANU Commencement Address, Simon enjoys pottering around his small garden at home or playing with his Chihuahua named Chester.
