When Simon has time outside of his busy family of four, he is a sports fanatic, taking the opportunity to indulge in every aspect of AFL, cricket and soccer. During many years as a player at the Monash Cricket Club, he was exposed to both good and bad characteristics of Australian sporting club culture.
In 2014 Simon, together with a very strong volunteer committee, founded a supporters group called the Purple Bombers. The group was fundamentally established to assist the Essendon Football Club and the AFL in being leaders of change, focusing on creating a safe environment for LGBTI supporters and players, by encouraging and promoting diversity, and acceptance within the wider football community. As Vice President, Simon was extremely excited when the Purple Bombers were announced as a Coterie group at the beginning of the 2016 AFL season. This is an initiative Simon is very passionate about and it was through this hugely positive, yet challenging and confronting experience, that Simon was inspired to pursue the development of a niche job board for the LGBTI community. The Purple Bombers experience highlighted, through both his personal and working relationships, how far we still have to go to create a truly inclusive and equal working environment for all people.
Having studied and completed his Bachelor of Multimedia/Business Marketing (2008) and prior to that an Advanced Diploma in I.T. (2002), Simon has long had a passion for IT and emerging technologies. LGBTI Jobs is the brain child of Simon's love of the digital age and his strong belief in the need for everyone to feel that they belong in a diverse, inclusive workplace.
