Born and raised in the south of France, Georges is not a typical artist. Of Japanese and American descent, he excelled in mathematics at school, and while studying music at Oxford University, he often attended lectures in existential philosophy and quantum mechanics. He questions traditional ways, attempting to think outside the box. His unrelenting thirst for knowledge coupled with his rebellious approach has given form to his musical creativity.

His work purposely lacks sentimentality and embellishment. He aims instead to simplify sonic ideas into their essential states; as a result, his music is often described as minimalist. He has won competitions, had his film scores broadcast on Sky TV, and has performed as a classical soloist with orchestras. Now however, he dedicates most of his time to composing and performing works for solo piano, as well as sharing his passion for music with his students.

Georges has founded several businesses including a tech consultancy, a film production company, and a table tennis fight club. He also sits on the Board of Trustees for the Fitzrovia Chapel Foundation, a secular venue and charity in the heart of London.
