Simon began working in the electrical field at the age of 17. Beginning his apprenticeship at Doon Campus at Conestoga, Simon went on to graduate with Honours 3 years later. He did most of his apprenticeship in Bruce and Grey County where he was exposed to various work environments, residential, commercial, agricultural, and even industrial. Fast forward 11 years later, and he now returns to where it all started. Doon.
Simon lives in the neighbourhood, and is often spotted walking his dog around the beautiful Doon trails. Having bought a home in Doon South, Simon has been approached by many in the neighbourhood. He has quite the reputation as he has made a name for himself in the area.
