Skills

He is strong, from growing up on a farm with parents who didn't believe in technology. And because of this lack of technology, Geoff was driven to learn as much as he could about computers. He was also on his high school wrestling team as well as track and field team. He also enrolled himself in a basic flight-training course for commercial freighters.

Personal History

Childhood and adolescence

Growing up in a small town in Western Kansas, Geoff never knew his real parents, but his adoptive parents treated him better then gold. Geoff grew up not on a farm with old fashioned folks that didn't like to depend on technology when the work could be done by hand. While in school, Geoff tended to understand computers and programming a lot better then most students and was applauded by his friends when he won a tech scholarship to a university of his choice.

 

Always looking at the stars from the loft of his barn, Geoff turned down the scholarship and applied to Starfleet, much to the horror of his adoptive parents. To make them feel better, Geoff said he'd take a flight training course with a friend of his father's. Learning the skills to pilot small shuttles and freighters, Geoff showed a natural talent, though he disliked situations that involved no gravity, and graduated at the top of the class. This finally convinced his parents that this was Geoff's dream and that he would be fine. Geoff and some of his friends headed to SF Academy with his parents blessing.

2375-2379: Starfleet Academy At the Academy, Geoff worked hard and kept the extra curricular activities to a minimum, preferring to study rather then party with his pals. He had also switched his minor late in his Academy career. Having had a taste of flying, he thought he might explore that avenue as well. Though noticed by his instructors as being very intelligent, resourceful and quick on the uptake, he was not honored when he graduated in the top twenty in his class. But Geoff didn't mind. He was just ready to go out and see the 'World'.

2379-present: USS Swiftsure NCC 26543

Serving staunchly aboard the USS Swiftsure. Here he met and married the Caitian V'Zara, on December 2383.
