Projects by Asset Type

The speeches that Geoffrey has worked on are mainly to inform the public about various threats facing the country, and what individuals can do to better prepare to combat these challenges. It's a milder version of Doomsday Preppers.

Projects By Expertise
Research Writer

They don't give out Master's degrees in International Relations without a heavy dose of research writing. Although Geoffrey was in fact the one paying for the privilege of writing most of these pieces, he did share a $1000 prize for Best Analytical Paper for the Class of 2015 with a Taiwanese colleague for a paper about coal consumption in China. His colleague supplied the Chinese language research and technical data, while Geoffrey provided the text.


Geoffrey has published a number of news and analysis pieces about the Korean Peninsula for a variety of online news sites, including The Diplomat, NKNews, and Korea Times. His work has been cited in reports about the region from the Brookings Institution and Freedom House, among others.

Projects by Writing Style

Geoffrey is currently working on a book about the 2016 presidential election. During the primary season, he traveled to 10 different states as part of the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign and hopes to publish a book about that experience. Think "Fear and Loathing On the Campaign Trail" with less drug abuse, but more threats of physical violence. Turns out not everyone appreciates having their door knocked on by a political canvasser.
