Simon is originally from Toronto, where he began his improv and comedy career, and was twice nominated for a Canadian Comedy Award. He has trained with The Second City. UCB, and the Groundlings. He spent two winters as a cast member with The Second City on board Norwegian Cruise Lines, probably the best job he will ever have. These days he splits his time between acting in commercials and being a dad. Simon sometimes performs scripted theater as an ensemble member of The San Francisco Neo-Futurists.
