Geoff McDonald, The Book Rapper
At the age of ten, Geoff found out he had a genius level IQ by completing a quiz in Reader’s Digest and he’s been living under this delusion ever since.
Geoff’s first career was as an architect having studied in the Australia and the US. And, working in the UK.
Today, he no longer designs buildings. Instead, as the Ideas Architect he helps individuals and organisations to design, build and sell their ideas. Book Rapper is his primary project for exploring how this can be done.
