About this human

Directing commercials and branded content for clients from Los Angeles and Vancouver to Tokyo over a span of ten years has made Shimon into some kind of an idiosyncratic visionary fitted with a culture-conscious lens.


He may be known for his original soundtracks, a knack for lighting scenes, and peculiar attachment to cinematic details, but his heartstrings are tied to team collaboration and capturing the spark of spontaneity in human emotions.


His downtime is spent passionately perfecting the art of cooking French-style eggs and nodding his head to polyrhythmic technical metal whilst meandering around the philosophy section of whatever book stores that still exist.


Currently, Shimon is in the midst of post-production for a spooky short film and a feature-length documentary that miraculously ties hockey and home renovation together to create what he believes is the most bitter-sweet piece of content he’s ever directed.
