Simon is a writer and editor for the UK's bestselling subscription magazine The Week. He also has a weekly investment column in the country's bestselling financial magazine Moneyweek.
Oddly, he combines this with another life as an actor on stage and television. He has worked at the National Theatre, Shakespeare's Globe and lots of other places, and has appeared in nearly every middlebrow TV crime drama you can think of.
Earlier this year, Simon could be seen as a charming-but-slimy brain surgeon on EastEnders, doing intentionally poor dancing in a successful attempt to make Ronnie Mitchell smile.
