Simon built his first computer out of Lego bricks and learned to program soon after. Emergence, networks, modes of thought, limits of language and expression are what makes him smile (and stay up at night). The combination of lisp and machine learning put him on the path of always striving to make himself redundant if not outright obsolete.

Currently, Simon is working hard to become obsolete at Metabase where he is trying to build an artificial data scientist and imbue visualisations with understanding and context.
