Hello! I'm Simon, and I'm a 9 year veteran of China business and marketing. I started my China career with a position with the Propaganda Office of the People's Govt of Beijing Municipality back in 2003. I co-founded our agency the same year.
I'm a specialist in China-region marketing communications, branding and brand localization, crisis communications and negotiation.

Beijing and Hong Kong, principally. Also Shanghai, Tianjin, Qingdao, Nanjing, Tieling, Xiamen, and in the region, Macau and Ulaanbaatar.
8 years (from 2003), right through the Beijing 2008 Olympics. I moved to NYC with my young family in 2011, to open my company's first US office.
My tastebuds are telling me, Mapu Doufu, Shaanxi hand-pulled noodles, good Tianjin-style baozi, good Dongbei-style jiaozi, with an honorable mention for my go-to during my first year in Beijing, Gong Bao Ji Ding with steamy mifan and Beijing's (in)famous Chuan'r.
