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 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. She is currently working on two solo pieces: Other (please specify): which tackles mixed-race identity through the stories of others she has interviewed, and Blue Room which was born of another pet project.
Simone is part of an international theatre troupe that devises their own work (and can't quite decide on a single name), works freelance as a party clown (including balloon artistry and face painting), is a Research Assistant at her alma mater, and also has another more conventional part-time job.
