Geoff has lived in Manly for 39 years. He is a neuroscientist who spent his career investigating migraine headaches. Geoff was also an activist for the Wilderness Society for over three decades and has managed many of their campaigns. In particular, Geoff worked on the famous campaign in the 1980’s to save the Franklin River from being dammed. This area is now World Heritage Listed.
The biggest lesson Geoff got from that experience was that people can make a difference – not only en masse, but individually, in a sense that in a close campaign like that, people can get a sense of:
“If I hadn’t have helped, we mightn’t have won.”
When asked (for this bio) what he does in his spare time, Geoff answered: “Spare Time?- Sorry, I had to look this up on Google. I don’t think I’ve ever had any of the stuff.”
