   Simone is a performing artist currently based in Aichi Prefecture, Japan. Born and raised in Miami, Florida, she moved out west to attend Pomona College in Claremont, CA, fell in love with a little known artform called Corporeal Mime, and decided to relocate there so that she could continue to study it in a more serious capacity.

 

She enjoys learning new skills, creative outlets of almost every variety, and not taking herself too seriously. 

In March of 2018, she followed a lingering feeling, that she'd regret not living abroad, and put her creative works aside for a few years to devote herself to a full-time teaching position in Japanese public schools.

 

While there she rekindled a forgotten interest in brush calligraphy, was forced to discover and develop her own illustration style, and burned out spectacularly.

Before the pandemic, she taught a couple of Introductory Corporeal Mime workshops, performed a mime piece in a show in Nagoya, was movement consultant to a local production of an original play, and did a few photoshoots with photographer Geoffrey Griggs.  

 

She is currently working on refining the skills she (re)gained while teaching, resurrecting her inner artist, and regaining a sense of self and purpose while looking for her next professional adventure.
