Executive Producer at Goodoil Films
Melbourne, Australia

Sumario

With a slight addiction to movies and music, Simon was always destined to join the production industry. When we say slight we mean massive. Known as Simo by his colleagues and friends at ad agencies and production houses, he's been a creative producer in the advertising industry for fifteen years, and managed successful production departments for the past nine. His passion? Transforming great ideas on paper into cutting edge campaigns through traditional and new media.

From multi-million dollar campaigns with complex scheduling, international locations and high profile talent negotiation to fast turnaround cutting edge social content that’s never been done before, Simo can make it happen. His love for creativity and craft has built him strong production partnerships, deep technical knowledge and recognition at Cannes, One Show, New York Festivals, London internationals and D&AD.

Simo would like to think of himself as Jason Bourne but really he's more like an always-on-the-phone undercover geek who likes to pull things apart and see how they tick. He believes in challenging the status quo, questioning the answer and continually adapting to enable truly integrated world class work
