Simone is a New York based actor and producer originally from Portland, OR. Initially entering the industry with a focus only on acting, Simone discovered a love (and knack) for producing back in 2016 when she and a fellow actor, both ready to start creating their own work, decided to produce a project together, which ultimately ballooned into the independent feature film When We Grow Up, starring Catherine Curtin of Homeland, Stranger Things, and Orange is the New Black, and which has since appeared in 8 film festivals across the country. When not producing indie film projects, Simone can be found onstage performing around New York and the greater Northeast. Recent credits include a role-swapping production of Macbeth as both Macbeth and Lady Macbeth with the Adirondack Shakespeare Company, Noel Coward’s Hay Fever with the Bagaduce Theater, and Hamlet with the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival. Simone earned a BA in Acting and Public Health from Beloit College and later studied at the Atlantic Acting School in New York City.
