George is a risk taker who aspires to live with no opportunities lost or great ideas not executed on. For more than 22 years, George has worked as a criminal justice professional helping our society's most broken individuals establish lives as productive citizens. He began his criminal justice career in 1998 working on the night shift in a juvenile prison which housed the most hardened juvenile offenders in Florida. After years working behind rows of fencing and razor wire, George realized the merits of treatment and delinquency prevention and set out to prevent young people from entering the system in the first place. His pursuit has led him all over our nation training criminal justice professionals in cognitive-behavioral interventions and effective communication.
In 2007, George founded an intensive mentoring program called Filter Family Solutions in Citrus County, FL that strives to create real solutions to strengthen families. With the powerful combination of evidence-based cognitive-behavioral programming, mandatory parental participation, and use of Honda trail bikes as a powerful incentive, Filter may be the
most unique mentoring program in the nation. George considers Filter to be his greatest career accomplishment and his greatest vocational passion.
Most recently, George has began a live Facebook broadcast entitled Schmaltalk on Tuesday evenings at 8pm EST. The show is then made available on YouTube and in podcast format on Apple Podcasts and Spotify. The goal is to engage in intellectually stimulating conversation with interesting people. Watch live on Facebook and you can join the live discussion!
