GEOFF NOTKIN
Official bio

Geoff Notkin starred in three seasons of the multi award-winning television adventure series Meteorite Men for Discovery networks and two seasons of the educational series STEM Journals, for which he received two Emmy Awards. He currently hosts the web series Meteorite Minute. He has also appeared in shows for Nat Geo, History Channel, Travel Channel, TLC, PBS, A&E, NASA EDGE, and the BBC. He is an author, publisher, photographer, world traveler, meteorite specialist, TEDx speaker, and President of both Aerolite Meteorites, Inc., and Desert Owl Productions, Inc. Geoff has appeared on Coast to Coast and the Today show, and has been interviewed by The Washington Post, The Huffington Post, Space.com, and Universe Today among others.

He is also a television and film producer and credits include Philip K. Dick’s Radio Free Albemuth and the documentary Neil Gaiman: Dream Dangerously. An award-winning author, Geoff has published hundreds of articles on meteoritics, paleontology, astronomy, adventure travel, history, and the arts, with his work appearing in Astronomy, Astronomy Now, Sky & Telescope, All About Space, USA Today, Wired, Reader’s Digest, The Village Voice, Seed, Rock & Gem, Geotimes, Meteorite, and many other national and international publications. He is the author of three books including the IPPY Award-winner Meteorite Hunting: How To Find Treasure From Space.

Geoff has worked with most of the world’s major institutions including The American Museum of Natural History, New York; The Natural History Museum, London; the Vienna Museum of Natural History, and The Center for Meteorite Studies at ASU, Tempe. He is a member of The Explorer’s Club, is on the Board of Governors of the National Space Society, the Advisory Board of Deep Space Industries and the Board of Directors of the Astrosociology Research Institute. The minor planet 132904, discovered at Mount Palomar, was named after Geoff in recognition of his contributions to science and education.

Adventuring has taken Geoff to over fifty countries and some of our planet’s most remote areas including northern Siberia, Chile’s Atacama Desert, the Australian Outback, and he has three times crossed the Arctic Circle.

By the age of seven Geoff was already an avid rock hound, fossil collector and amateur astronomer. “I was amazed that you could see other worlds from a suburban London garden,” Geoff states. “The epiphany came when I visited London’s Geological Museum as a child. In the Hall of Meteorites I realized that studying meteorites would be the perfect combination of geology and astronomy. I have been hooked ever since.”

Geoff was born on 14th street in Manhattan and grew up in London, England. He studied in London, Boston and New York, and now resides in the Sonoran Desert of Arizona.
