Simon Taylor

Simon lives in Riverhead, Auckland, New Zealand, with Jo Larkin and two children, Millicent and Zachary, and a diminutive black cat, Olive, and misses his dog, Ariel, a brindle English Bull Terrier of remarkable self-possession and longevity, who came to the end of her long life 8/02/06. He pulls coffee at Brazil, K'Rd. - a café he established and owns with his brother, Dominic - and writes for page, stage and screen. A director with a background in theatre, he, last year, in collaboration with Dominic, completed a series of 4 music videos for local musician, SJD. As a poet and songwriter, Simon has previously published almost solely in performance.
