I met GEOFF in 1982 at Cal Arts and he quickly became one of the friends and colleagues that inspired me into the depths of animating from my inner core. No one could deny that Geoff knew what he liked and what he wanted to do. He did it well for his entire life. The purpose of art is to show life, not to propose intellect or examine ego, and I think Geoff knew that from the start. He was always modest, unpretentious, and connected to this universe of life.
