Eric Simon spent roughly half of his childhood in Paris, France, and the other half in southern California. After getting a Masters in environmental management from Duke University, he spent five years working for the state air quality agency in Sacramento, California. He then moved to the San Francisco area, where he worked for a start-up high tech company. He then got a Masters of Education from the University of San Francisco, and taught both math and French in public high schools. After teaching for five years, he studied in Germany for three years and received a technical media degree from the Fachhochschule Dusseldorf. While in Germany, he became interested in documentary filmmaking, and produced a short documentary about the future of solar energy in Europe, and then another video about places to see in and around Milan, Italy. Having recently completed his second medium-length documentary, Eric aspires to make more. He speaks several languages and loves to travel. His first documentary, What’s Going On with Wolves?, can be viewed here:
