|Bio||Simon joined R13 in May 2005 and became a news writer in October of that year. In February 2007 he became the site's deputy editor.
Away from Room Thirteen he has been known to write for the travel site Gapyear.com and a rugby league fan site focusing on Harlequins RL, as well as ocasionally being a radio presenter. One of his reviews, one for Foo Fighters at Hyde Park in 2006, found it's way into the review section of the Independent.
Recently he has been working for a children's theatre company in Hackney, primarily in a marketing role.
Musically he is into anything from Prince and Basement Jaxx to Frank Turner, Cooper Temple Clause, Smashing Pumpkins, Snow Patrol, Ash, Muse, AC/DC and Iron Maiden.
Summer 2008 saw him go to festival number 20, and in his time at RoomThirteen has covered Reading, Leeds, Isle of Wight, V and the Edinburgh Fringe. He has never been to a foreign festival, something that needs to be put right. He wants to travel more and in the past has climbed the Empire State building in the fog, just to say he'd been there, and cycled across Cuba and from Wembley to Berlin for the start of the World Cup.
Aside from music he is a sports freak both doing and watching. His claim to fame is being part of the England team in the Manchester Commonwealth Games in 2002. He supports Liverpool and also takes more than a passing interest in Brentford. His other favourite sport is rugby league and is a season ticket holder at Harlequins Rugby League.
