New kid on the block, Simon recently joined our Social and Copy department as an intern. Born in Stellenbosch, studied through UNISA, with a lifelong dream of becoming an actor in Hollywood. His life motto, “Question all you see, for the world is but a point of view.”
Here’s a little more about the latest Greek (one out of three) to join our team:
– What was your first job?
I’ve worked on film shoots and adverts since I was 7, but technically my first job was as a barman when I turned 18.
– Any hidden talents?
I can put my whole fist in my mouth, not sure if it’s a talent but it certainly gets a reaction.
– Do you have an alter ego?
I often pretend I’m a Russian tourist called Viktor to mess with people.
– Number 1 on your bucket list?
Skydive in a squirrel suit; I cannot imagine anything better than the feeling of flying, even if it is just falling with style.
– What are your pet hates?
Arrogance and ego, if you’re good at something you shouldn’t have to tell people – they will know.
– Favourite person you follow on Twitter?
Jayden Smith, his comments and statements are beyond hilarious.
– What is the most important thing you’ve learned since starting at Saatchi & Saatchi Synergize?
The family dynamic is key to producing great work; there is always a need for some fun to encourage a positive attitude.
– Your Lovemark?
