My name is Simon; I spend my time thinking about how we work, work together, and work remotely. I speak sometimes, mostly about remote work, data and analytics, and organizational design.

I’m a member of the Product organization at Disney Streaming, bringing the best storytelling of our generation to all corners of the world.

Previously I worked on Product at Fishtown Analytics, the folks behind the world-changing dbt – before that I ran the analytics function for WordPress.com and Automattic.

I believe that actionable insights can be found for any business, and lessons from Big Data can bear fruit for smaller business, organizations, and maybe families too.

I think that when we work together, we can change each other’s minds and change the world. I think cooperation beats competition. I believe in open source.

In my blog I mostly write about things I’ve read or things I’m thinking about. Big topics tend to be remote work, leading remote teams, and some critical thinking about organizations and transparency.
