PokerStars Blog profile: Simon Young

Simon Young
PokerStars Editor-in-Chief

simon-young-profile.jpgSimon Young is a journalist who worked at the sharp end of the British newspaper industry for 19 years, with roles including Deputy News Editor of The Sun and Assistant Editor of the Sunday Express.

He met with PokerStars staff during a media trip to the World Series of Poker in 2005 - and began working for the business a year later, first as a freelance, then as Head of Blogging and now as Editor-in-Chief running the business' owned media properties.

Interests are varied and make unlikely bedfellows: cycling (getting fit), home brewing (getting unfit), cooking and Ipswich Town Football Club.
