Growing up in the Pacific NW of Washington State, at age 18, Geoffery Paul Simmons (now father of 4 beautiful daughters, 1 son and 2 grand-sons, then drama and choir-geek, former gospel church and Northwest Boy Choir Touring Choir member) was selected for the Air Force choir but chose to join the Navy for 11 years after high school graduation as a Hospital Corpsman instead. During his Navy/Marine off-time he performed in local talent-contests, formed several bands and played professionally at festivals and events around the world. After an honorable discharge at Bangor Air force Base, he flew back to live in Tokyo for another 9 years.

In order to support his growing passion for acting and performing there he taught English at Berlitz, modeled at I.S.O.P. talent agency, doing commercials and television shows, and performing in the rock band Multiculture as lead singer/keyboardist and rhythm guitar player in some of Tokyo's club hot-spots. Geoffery even performed back-up for Mariah Carey at the Tokyo Dome for 3 sold-out concerts during her 1996 Butterfly tour.

He was born at Swedish Hospital in Seattle, raised in Bellevue, Woodinville, Marysville and Clearview, Washington. After he graduated from Marysville Pilchuck High School he joined the Navy and lived in San Diego, Charleston, Virginia Beach and Camp Lejuene with the U.S. Marines as a Combat Corpsman.

   Adopted as a baby by honorable parents Charles and G. Mary Simmons, who loved him and nurtured his soul (Props to God), and while frequently hearing later an adult that he looked like former college Heisman Trophy candidate, NFL/Pro Bowl Wide receiver, College Hall of Fame and Emmy award-winning Sportscaster, Ahmad Rashad, especially during his east coast visits, he never took the idea seriously. He was genuinely surprised to learn through Medina Children's Service (now Amara) he was in fact his biological son. Geoffery happily reunited with Ahmad Rashad and bio family and has since learned that, like his biological parents (his mother RIP~ the beautiful Melody May Neal Daniels, also attended Mt. Tahoma where Ahmad/formerly Bobby Moore is a Hall of Fame member ) and other family members, including his beautiful sister Condola Rashad (2 time Tony nominee who just finished playing "Juliet" in Romeo and Juliet on Broadway opposite Orlando Bloom and Chuck Cooper!) he shares with them the similiar drive to achieve high standards and fun while performing and pursuing his acting career.
