When he’s not drinking whisky Simon can usually be found managing eldest son Adam’s HMH football team or running the line at youngest son Louis’ football match, in between losing at backgammon to daughter Katie.  Outside of those activities, he enjoys (or used to, anyway) eating out, theatre and partying with wife Rachael.  Oh and he’s a corporate real estate partner at law firm Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner (BCLP) for whom he’s worked his entire career.  Joining the Shul council is a natural step for someone who has always volunteered and Simon plans to make a meaningful contribution to Shul life with a particular interest in finding ways the community can connect with more of its members (young, old, religious, not so religious, etc) to make Shul relevant to people – and maybe even fun.
