My name is Simon. I'm a proper hockey-loving Canadian boy who loves his poutines.
Otherwise, I'm the Director of Professional Relations for Chess.com and I work as Danny's assistant on a variety of projects. I mostly handle communications with all the different contributors and partners we have. I'm also involved with various tasks related to the content you see and enjoy on the site.
I feel really lucky to be working for such a great company. It was a dream come true when Erik (CEO Erik!) called me for an interview. I thought it was a prank at first! A week later, I was on the team, meeting with everyone who makes this site so amazing.
I'm one of the few employees that members will interact with and I feel responsible for representing everyone else who works here, and their hard work, when I talk to members, partners, contributors or anyone else really.
Glad to be on the team and looking forward to helping Chess.com become even better!
