Simon joined Azavea after graduating from the Master of City Planning program at the University of Pennsylvania. During his time at Penn, he focused on the emerging field of Smart Cities, exploring new applications of data for urban decision-making.
In addition to data analysis roles at Urban Spatial, The Philadelphia Water Department, and The Wharton Real Estate Center, Simon has worked in film and television production and as a real estate photographer. He has a B.A. in Political Science from Macalester College.
When Simon is not crunching numbers at Azavea he can frequently be found on a strip of Philadelphia grass, throwing a tennis ball to his dog Goose and hoping he comes back with it.
