Personal Biography

As a first generation born American, Simon grew up with immigrant parent-values, working in the family business from the young age of 6. His parent’s involvement in their local community, passion for travelling, and interaction with various cultures were passed down and continue with him today. 

His wife, Lexy, is also a first generation American, and together they travel, volunteer, and pursue making a meaningful impact on society, one interaction at a time. You can see them out and about with their dog, Hashtag, but they most enjoy dinner dates and board game nights with their close-knit friend group when they’re not binge watching the latest tv shows.

Simon is currently working towards his Masters of Law (LL.M.) degree, where he anticipates graduating in December 2021 from the University of Oklahoma, and Lexy is pursuing a dual major, aspiring to one day get her Ph.D. in Psychology.
