Simon's Profile

Experience Summary

I have been working in promotions at various positions for over 6 years. I have been able to use my acting and singing skills for many of these promotions. The Walkers Crisps singing campaign 'The Walkers Crusaders' won an experiential advertising award for Comment UK. As well as promotional work I sing and write songs with my jazz band at London jazz clubs, corporate events, parties and national festivals. I am currently working with Fran Landesman, the songwriter who wrote for Ella Fitzgerald, Barbara Streisand and Shirley Bassey. I am a highly energetic and motivated individual that enjoys the promotional environment. I like the fact that through the many agencies and clients I get to work with a variety of people. This for me keeps the area of promotion work exciting. My other interests are World Cinema, Japanese culture, writing lyrics and poetry and going to see great Theatre.
