Geoffrey Mandel grew up in Greenwich Village in a family of writers and editors, including LIFE Magazine editors and novelists Paul and Sheila Mandel. After graduating from Tufts and Stanford and kicking around the publishing world in New York and Boston, Mandel took a career detour to NYU’s graduate film program, where he wrote and directed the Student Academy Award-nominated short “Kill the Director.”

His first industry job was as an art department assistant on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, and since 1995 he has been working as a graphic designer for films and TV shows, including Space: Above & Beyond, JAG, NCIS, Star Trek: Voyager, Spider-Man 2, Serenity, Blades of Glory, Dirt, X-Men: First Class, Gangster Squad, Parks & Recreation, Mad Men, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., The Muppets, Black Mass, La La Land, and the upcoming Downsizing and American Made.

In his spare time, Mandel designs and illustrates props, blueprints and star maps for various science fiction franchises, including the Serenity blueprints, and maps of the Star Trek, Firefly and Battlestar Galactica universes. He lives in beautiful downtown Burbank.
