Geoffrey Cantor

Chief Creative Consultant

Geoffrey Cantor is a classically trained and working actor, director, and coach. He graduated magna cum laude from Amherst College in 1984, and studied at the National Theater Institute (Eugene O'Neill Theater Center), and after college, at London’s Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. Geoffrey is a creative visionary whose skill set is drawn from the combination of his three years as a social worker in Jersey city, his thirty years as a professional actor, and his extensive experience in the full spectrum of the media production process.

 

His unique background made him the ideal choice to be the on-air talent (and later de facto co-director) for Kleenex’s award-winning Let It Out™ campaign, in which he was featured as the “Good Listener,” touring the country for a full year interviewing over 800 people on topics ranging from Mother's Day and love, to loss and domestic abuse. As creative consultant for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, he oversaw the development of diverse media with Joanne L. Harpel for their public affairs, programmatic, and development departments, including promos, TV and radio PSA's that helped raise over $9 million in 300 markets nationwide and educational programs that were shown in 300 cities on six continents world-wide. He also developed Goodbye Harassment, an online program providing sensitivity training in the workplace in collaboration with Jeff Pollack, Esq. of Mintz and Gold, LLP.
