While studying PR and Ad, Simone executed a campaign for the student film Anmol. She took courses in copywriting, digital advertising and SEO, became certified in Google’s Adwords, and got started in journalism after writing an article for her Story Telling for Business course about a small vintage store blocks away from campus that helped costume design hit tv show Mad Men.

 Simone has interned in music and PR since her freshman year, managing her time to accumulate real world experience alongside her courses. Either being the music writer for Crossfader Magazine or being published in the school’s literary magazine, Calliope, writing quickly became a skill that set Simone apart. Simone’s knowledge of the public and the press gave her an extra edge in journalism. After interning in A&R for Riptide Music Group, her experience working in the music industry gave her an innate sense of navigating the field. She has experience as an artist, the press, and the record label. This allows her to ask meaningful questions that further an artist’s relationship to the public. After graduating, Simone was hired by the Newport Beach Independent, where she quickly became a columnist. There she won five awards from the OC Press Club and began freelancing for the Washington City Paper

Along with music, Simone expressed her own artistic creativity in her production design minor. She quickly became a sought-out costume designer in her film school and enjoyed working at For the Stars Fashion House and alongside celebrity stylist Zoe Costello. She helped style events from the Emmy Awards to Coachella. At school, Simone production and costume designed many student films, executed two thesis films for her production design degree, and went on to work on sets and commercials for Amazon, Target, Urban Outfitters, and the Student Academy Awards.
