Shed Simove is an inventor of products that have sold 1+ million units, a TV executive that created Big Brother in the UK, a best-selling author (wait till you hear how!) and an entrepreneur that is pushing us all beyond the limits of what we think is possible, plausible or necessary. And that's where the magic happens.
I first met Shed at a cafe where he proceeded to show me his inventions, including a flying helicopter with the word "F*CK" on it (a "Flying Fuck"). During our meeting in 2007 (I was 21!), he received a call from the equivalent of the NY Times in London. Before I knew it, we dashed to the lobby of the Telegraph only for Shed to fly his Flying F*CK around the lobby and get front page coverage next day.
And so it goes. While Shed won't admit it, I will: Deep down, he's a philosopher at life, and through wacky inventions and TV shows and entrepreneurial activity, Shed reminds us all what we're here to do: explore, dream, use our minds and be kind.
Thank you Shed.
