Simon arrived in tropical East Arnhem Land from a very wintery Melbourne in 1998 - he’s never looked back. 

He landed on Elcho Island to publish bi-lingual teaching resources for the NT Education Department and in 2003 moved to Darwin to establish his own book publishing business, Niblock Publishing. 

Simon has a Bachelor of Computing (Monash), post graduate qualifications in editing and publishing from RMIT and has worked in the book publishing industry since 1994. Simon is married with two young boys. 

Simon is also a keen cyclist and gardener, and is interested in sustainability and better urban development and planning.

As our city grows and population density increases, developing green space and enhancing the "urban forest" will become ever more important. Simon wants see Council do more to encourage walking and cycling and believes more community participation in Council decision making is critical to improve the services Council provides.

He is Chair of the Nightcliff Primary School Council and a member of the Australian Institute of Company Directors.
