Geoff Carter

Senior Editor

Experts in paleoanthropology believe that Geoff Carter began his career in journalism sometime in the early Grunge period, when he joined the staff of Scope Magazine, the monthly alternative magazine that evolved into Las Vegas Weekly. Since then, it’s been nothing but hot rocks, big hits and fazed cookies: working staff gigs at the Las Vegas Sun, the Seattle Times and Vegas Seven; getting his freelance kicks at MSN, Time Out and Entrepreneur. He enjoys traveling, photography, Disneyland, fancy drinks and talking to you. His return to the Weekly staff was prophesied.
