Life and Career
Simon grew up in Canada, and while he was in high school dated several girls before experimenting with his sexuality; it was at this point that he realized that he was gay. After matriculating, he moved to the US and enrolled at the University of Southern California (USC), where he completed his bachelor’s degree.
After graduating, he initially worked in publicity and stayed for a short while in the US, before he moved to Russia to work with the international fast-food chain McDonald’s, as their public relations manager. However, he didn’t stay long with McDonald’s, and worked for various companies in Europe, always focusing on public relations. He built his experience, and then returned to the US, to the company BWR Public Relations, and during his time there, connected with a lot of significant names in the entertainment industry.
Success in the Public Relations Field
After a few years with BWR, Halls left the company to start his own. He established Huvane Baum Halls along with two associates and served as the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the company for many years. The firm established itself as a powerhouse, representing names such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Russell Crowe and Jennifer Aniston. In 2001, they were acquired by the company PMK and the two companies merged.
Initially, the companies operated independently of one another, but later he was assigned to become the CEO of PMK alongside Cindi Berger.
The new PMK then merged with another firm, Slate PR, which helped the companies retain a strong presence in both Hollywood and New York. The merger also allowed him to connect with more stars, and he also entered the world of politics, as a member of the Entertainment Council of Hillary Clinton during her presidential campaign. His work has been featured by several publications including “Business Insider”, which named him one of the most famous publicists in the film industry.
He continues in public relations, while also taking care of his family.
Husband – Matt Bomer
After completing his Fine Arts degree from Carnegie Mellon University, Matt made his television debut as a guest in the soap opera “All My Children” in 2000, which had already run for around three decades. He went on to make guest appearances in other television shows, before in 2005 making his film debut in “Flightplan”.
His popularity grew two years later, when he joined the cast of the series “Chuck”, which aired on the NBC. In 2009, he gained the lead role in the show “White Collar” which he worked on for the next five years. Concurrently he had film projects such as “In Time”, “Magic Mike”, “Magick Mike 2”, and “Winter’s Tale”. He received award nominations for his work in “The Normal Heart”, and also starred in the film “The Nice Guys”, and became a regular cast member during the fifth season of “American Horror Story”.

In recent years, he’s worked on the films “Papi Chulo” and “Walking Out, Anything” which earned him critical acclaim for his work. He also starred in the Broadway play entitled “8”, which is about the overturning of California’s Proposition 8 banning same-sex marriage.
Simon and Matt met each other through connections in the entertainment industry – Matt was set to be a client of Simon.
The two started a relationship in 2009, and after two years married in a small ceremony in New York City, with only people close to them in attendance. A year after their marriage, Matt came out as gay while he was accepting a Steve Chase Humanitarian Award, although their relationship and marriage were only discovered in 2014. The couple has three children together, all conceived through surrogacy. He’s since been an activist for LGBT rights.
