Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, Geoff had a creative streak and a love of art since he was old enough to hold a crayon. After 7 years of art school, Geoff found jobs with the American Red Cross and the NYC Board of Education which allowed him to give back to the community. Eventually Geoff found a home in Westchester County where he could write songs and poetry, work in clay as a ceramic artist, and further expand his design talents.
Coming out to the LGBTQ community in 2000 and wanting to further his contribution, Geoff soon connected with The Loft, his local LGBTQ organization. At the start he would present his work at a variety of craft fairs and art exhibits. Years later, Geoff would reconnect with The Loft and create their fresh, new logo. He has continued to volunteer and use his skills designing artwork and logos for a variety of Pride events and group activities, as well as organizing an “Out at the Movies" group and other events.
These days, along with his Queery partners, he has created the Sticks and Stones exhibit which allows people to have open conversations about terms used against the LGBTQ community, a poster calling out how domestic violence is not only physical, but verbal as well, and Just Love, a queer-centric card game that playfully focuses on searching for love, fighting off hate, learning queer history and eventually finding your rainbow. Through these types of projects, Geoff hopes to draw you in to all that Queery has to offer. Check out how he and his partners are working to improve and expand the knowledge and understanding of folks both inside and outside our LGBT communities.
