Geoff Brigham (Wikimedia) and Classical Flute

Picture13Today, my guest is Geoff Brigham, General Counsel of the Wikimedia Foundation, who is a trained classical musician. Geoff started playing the flute in high school and after getting into the prestigious Peabody Institute of Music at John Hopkins, 143px-Wikimedia_Foundation_RGB_logo_with_text.svgquickly realized he was not going to have a career in music.  So he moved to Paris and made a living performing in the underground subways of Paris.  Eventually, he gave up being a classical musician and became a successful lawyer, but even today, he practices virtually every day, has owned 4 different flutes and still performs once a year at a music festival in France.
