Simon is the communication coordinator for the international open standards organisation the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC). He produces non-technical (or translated from technical) written content for OGC and manages its social media channels. He holds a BSc in GIS and resource & environmental management, as well as a graduate diploma in science communication. He worked in GIS for a few years before jumping ship and becoming the assistant editor for Australia's only geospatial magazine, Position. He left Australia in 2015 to travel via rail to the UK, in a brash effort to confirm the size of the globe (rather large). He's part tech geek, part science nerd, and a borderline music obsessive.
