Simon was awarded a MSc degree from the University of Edinburgh in Physics, with a masters in acoustics. From this, combined with a strong musical background, entering the world of sound design for live events was an obvious direction. Class 6 Productions was incorporated in 2013 as an umbrella company to look after the growing demand for sound design for classical concerts. When Simon cannot commit to a project, Class 6 Productions has a great team of UK based freelancers with specialists from system design to electronics and both front of house and monitor engineers. Class 6 Productions also holds equipment to hire, specialist to the contemporary classical music industry. When not working, Simon enjoys DIY and spending time in the countryside or with Family. His brother runs a successful production company specialising in producing west end theatre and his wife, Katie, is the owner of Candles by Kate, a London-based company hand-pouring natural scented candles.
