our story.

Geist means “spirit” but more personally, it’s the name of the reservoir in Indiana where my maternal Grandfather taught me how to sail. 168th is the cross street in the Bronx borough of New York City where my Dad was born and his parents grew up. We aim to embody the intersection of Midwestern values and New York hustle.
