If you know George, you know he’s a music junkie. If he’s not at a concert or record shopping, he’s playing guitar or mandolin in one of his three bands. He loves writing music, and has recorded three records as part of various projects. He’s an avid runner, completing his first marathon in 2017. He also loves coffee, hiking, and beer, although rarely at the same time.
Some fun facts about George: an artist opened for him who also opened for Bob Dylan. Songs that he recorded were used in marketing material for a company that sells athletic socks. He’s very serious about not taking life too seriously, as he is a hopeless optimist.
