An adventurous world traveler and father of three, Geoff’s passport has been stamped in exotic locales such as India, where he rode elephants with his wife and children; and Kenya, where he administered life-saving medications on mission trips. When he doesn’t have his seat in the upright and locked position, Geoff can be found cheering on his sons and daughter at a swim meet, or volunteering with the March of Dimes, an organization dear to his heart as the father of thriving prematurely-born twins.
