Since his childhood Simon has been engaged in music and developed a great interest in making music with guitar, piano, drums and singing. His fascination with films grew during his high school graduation, which led to the idea of combining both fields and taking a one-year course in Basic Filmmusic Composer at the Musicube Academy in Bonn.

In order to delve even deeper into music history and the theoretical foundations of music, Simon studied musicology at the Johannnes Gutenberg University in Mainz, graduating first with a Bachelor’s degree and then with a Master’s degree. Parallel to his master’s degree, he worked as a student assistant in the department of music supervision at ZDF and was actively involved in the development of musical concepts for feature films. Since August 2018 he works as project manager at Dynamedion.
