Stand aside Dos Equis guy…Geoffrey Wilcoxson is truly the most interesting man in the world. He’s been a marine, a chef, an internet marketing guru (his current job), an ASU football photographer, a college lacrosse player, and a house-music DJ. In addition to all that, he’s a great husband and father and a passionate follower of Jesus. He loves people and is filled with a contagious zeal for life. Get to know him (just a little) more here:
