About

A little bit about me...

Hello, I’m Simon! Currently a rising sophomore at Northeastern University in Boston, I have a passion for blending business with creativity and creating unforgettable experiences for the consumer. Believing that experience is the best way to learn, from a young age I have applied myself to working alongside industry leaders in the marketing field and spent time at interning at some of the most respected communications firms in the Washington area. I have also followed the entrepreneurial fire that burns within me and started my own small business at age ten. Today that business – Simon Plant Care, Inc. – has a rapidly growing client base and a sizable part-time team. My work has been featured in publications ranging from Bethesda Magazine to The Washington Post but I am always most excited about what comes next. Will it be with you?
