Simon Cohn-Gruenwald was born and raised in Oakland, California. Growing up, he developed a strong passion for the arts, choosing to attend Oakland School for the Arts studying visual arts in middle school. In high school, he began to explore and develop a strong interest in photography, gradually transitioning from an amateur photographer to a top of the industry professional. Learning the business side of photography sparked his love for business, leading him today to run various businesses in different niches, from botany, marketing, to climbing apparel. This, combined with his love for travel and the rest of the world, led him to switch his major from Television, Film, and New Media to International Business with an emphasis in Spanish and Western Europe. Simon also enjoys being active, having played hockey, soccer and golf during his teenage years. Today you will find him climbing rocks, surfing, hiking up the tallest mountains across the globe, or even just at the beach watching the sunset.
