Geoffrey continued his education at Colorado State University, taking a B.F.A. with a concentration in printmaking in 1985. There followed another three years of graduate study of printmaking, also at CSU.
In 1988, an opportunity presented itself to go to Japan and teach English. For the next four years, Geoffrey resided in Japan, picking up the language while there, as well as some formal instruction in calligraphy.
