He has been dancing professionally in the U.S.A. for over 6 years now, and continues to grow as an artist working on a style of his own: Simon Says : I must admit, if nothing else, I have discovered the secret of a versatile male oriental dancer who can gracefully fuse an oriental belly dance sensual style with a masculine flair.”  ”Particular to my dancing, I rarely overcrowd the movements. I give the music the space to flow, and I dance to beats and colors that attract me"
