A gifted actor, writer, and producer, Simon made a name for himself in Canadian film with his work on BLACK COP, Across the Line, the hit TV series Mr. D, and the short films THUG, and AGAINST THE GRAIN. He co-directed and starred in the short film DIVINATIONS, commissioned by REEL CANADA and Netflix for National Canadian Film Day 2021.
