Geoff was born in Southsea, Hampshire in 1949. He is the son of a Royal Navy officer and his early life was somewhat peripatetic, as is the norm with many service families. In 1958 he emigrated with his family to South Africa where they stayed for two years before moving North to Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe). He attended junior and high school in Salisbury (now Harare) and served a five-year apprenticeship as a compositor with The Rhodesia Herald newspaper during the country's turbulent UDI years.

Geoff joined the British South Africa Police "A" Reserve as a patrol officer and served in this capacity for nearly three years. He left Rhodesia and returned to the UK in 1974 when in that same year he married Christine. He attended the London College of Printing obtaining a Diploma in Printing Management and then worked in publishing in various capacities. In 1980 he moved to work in Tonbridge, where for two years he also served as a special constable.

Geoff joined the Royal Tunbridge Wells Orpheus Male Voice Choir in 1986 and served on its committee as secretary and chairman until 2013, when he joined the baritone section of Kent Police Male Voice Choir. His connections with Kent Police continue with his eldest son who serves as a Sergeant in Medway. He retired in 2015 from his work as sales manager with Europe's largest book printing group and now (partly) concentrates on running his wedding photography business which he started in 2013.

Apart from singing, other interests include book design and layout for authors, photography, consultancy for self-publishers, travel, sailing, reading and a lively interest in worldwide current affairs. Geoff's 3-year-old grand-daughter also keeps him on his toes.

You are a great asset to Kent Police Male Voice Choir Geoff, we hope you enjoy our company and our singing.
