About me
Hello, my name is Simon. I'm an experienced content producer, copywriter, and music lover with a passion for working in digital marketing and the music industry. Alongside my content, editorial, and copywriting background, I have a wealth of knowledge within radio production from my work with BBC, Balamii, Reform Radio, London Fields Radio, and Folded Wing. I am based in Berlin and looking for new opportunities. I will relocate for the right role. I’m also open to remote work. If you would like to get in touch, email me at siedwards6@gmail.com

    Anthony Willis dissects his score to Promising Young Woman“With trauma, you have to have seen the light as well as the dark.

We talked in-depth about his journey into film composition, turning expectation on its head, and his strung-out, ten
