Hello, and welcome to the official homepage for Geoff ‘DeafGeoff’ Herbert!
I’m an Entertainment Reporter and the SEO Lead for syracuse.com and The Post-Standard newspaper in Syracuse, N.Y. I write about music, movies, television, celebrity gossip and other hot topics, as well as work in search engine optimization for the Syracuse Media Group.
On nights and weekends, I’m a wedding DJ in Syracuse and Central New York with a passion for fun music.
As my nickname suggests, I really am deaf. I was born with a profound binaural hearing loss, which means I hear about 10 percent as well as the average person. Through years of speech therapy, though, many forget I’m hard-of-hearing as I’ve become adept at lipreading — as you may see when I tweet what Jim Boeheim says during Syracuse basketball games. :)
I’m also a freelance SEO consultant that can advise your company on improving your search engine rankings, and am available as a motivational speaker for schools, disability groups and other special events.
