GEOFF NOTKIN
Official bio

Geoff Notkin hosts the award-winning television adventure series Meteorite Men on Science Channel and has appeared in shows for Discovery, NASA EDGE, TLC, PBS, A&E, National Geographic, History Channel, Travel Channel, and the BBC. He is a science writer, meteorite specialist, photographer, world traveler, and the owner of Aerolite Meteorites LLC, a company that provides meteorite specimens to collectors and institutions worldwide. 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 many other leading publications.

An award-winning author, Geoff has published more than 150 articles on meteoritics, paleontology, astronomy, adventure travel, history, and the arts, with his work appearing in Astronomy, Astronomy Now, Sky & Telescope, USA Today, Wired, Reader’s Digest, The Village Voice, Seed, Rock & Gem, Geotimes, American Digger, Meteorite, and many other national and international publications. He is the author of the books Meteorite Hunting: How To Find Treasure From Space and Rock Star: Adventures Of A Meteorite Man, and a popular science and arts blog, The Logical Lizard, for TucsonCitizen.com.

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; and The Center for Meteorite Studies at ASU, Tempe. He is a professional member of The Explorer’s Club, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, the International Meteorite Collectors’ Association, and the Association of Applied Paleontological Sciences. 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 forty-five 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.

Fascinated by meteorites since he was a little boy, by the age of seven Geoff was already an avid rock hound and fossil collector. His father was an amateur astronomer and shared a love of stargazing. “I was stunned that you could actually see other worlds from a suburban London garden,” Geoff states: “I suppose the epiphany came when I visited London’s Geological Museum as a child. I was awed by the Hall of Meteorites and realized that studying and collecting meteorites would be a unique 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 geology, astronomy, photography, writing, and design in London, Boston and New York, now resides in the Sonoran Desert of Arizona, and considers Tucson his home.
