Tiziana Simpson
Creative Director
Buddha Jones

HOLLYWOOD, USA // Tiz Simpson is a Creative Director at Buddha Jones. The road to Buddha started in the mid 90’s with 8 years at New Wave Entertainment, 6 years at Intralink and 6 years at Acme. Tiz started her career as an Executive Assistant at New Wave and would stay late to learn the AVID and cut. Two years later she won the “bake off” that made her an Assistant Editor and the rest was history. In 2000, Tiz officially started her Editorial path which lead to working on campaigns such as: The DaVinci Code, The Dark Knight, Labor Day, Phantom Thread, On The Basis of Sex and many more.

If you have ever met Tiz, it will be no surprise that producing came naturally and was an organic transition from editing. By the time she got to Buddha in 2017, Producing became her main focus. Now as a Creative director, Tiz looks forward to every creative challenge and loves collaborating with editors and continuing to build partnerships in the industry. Tiz is a first generation Italian from West Philadelphia (yes you can sing the Fresh Prince of Bel Air song in your head now) and moved out to LA after graduating from Drexel University in 1994. She is a mom to a son and daughter and a wife to a Senior Online Editor at Picture Head. Oh and they have 3 fur babies too. Life is definitely not boring!!!
