Simon was born and raised in Terrace, BC. He completed a Bachelor of Arts degree at McGill University and went on to pursue his love of theatre in England, where he studied classical acting at LAMDA and performed in multiple shows including Sam Mendes’ international hit production of Richard III at both the Old Vic in London and BAM in New York. He also has 8 years of Sales and Customer Service experience with UK-based tech companies Approved Index and MVF Global. Along with his wife, Roanna, Simon returned to Canada in 2014 and began working with video game developer, Ubisoft, in Toronto. It was on purchasing their first home that he was bitten by the real estate bug and decided to become a Realtor. The onset of a global pandemic, the birth of their daughter and a burning desire to live closer to home resulted in the Phillips family coming to Vancouver Island. Simon is proud to join the ranks of Royal LePage Parksville-Qualicum Beach’s excellent group of professionals, working as a part of Karen Kenyon’s Dream Homes Vancouver Island Group. He used to come here for Christmas visits, and now it would seem he’s staying for a lifetime.
