After years of neglect, Geoff opened up the vault and released a collection of original compositions from over the course of the previous 10 years entitled "Oyster Brew" (available on iTunes, Amazon and other music sites), so named for one of the included tracks. Everything on the album is 100% all Geoff, composed and recorded in his home studio.
Geoff began studying classical piano at age 5, and began composing at age 10. During his teenage years in the late 70s, he became interested in synthesizers, playing in several bands with a heavy influence from progressive rock artists such as Yes and Genesis. In 1983, upon graduating high school, he started working at Oberheim Electronics in Santa Monica, CA as an audio technician, testing synthesizers, drum machines and the like. Later he helped open the North American office of Steinberg GmbH and for a while was the nation's leading expert on all things related to Cubase, their flagship MIDI and digital audio recorder.
By 1989, Geoff was writing books and teaching people how to use computers and MIDI, and soon attracted some well known clients such as Hans Zimmer, Jeff Lorber, Allan Holdsworth, and Lee Ritenour. He continued to compose and record, but his works always took a backseat to that of his clients. While at Steinberg he was introduced to a software program called FileMaker and in the mid-90s, putting his music on hold, began a new career as a custom database developer. In 2001, he started a company providing custom development of business software solutions, which for over 12 years he helped grow to over $3 million annual revenue before deciding to leave the stress of running a business behind and go independent again while returning to his first love: music.
