George studied at the Royal College of Art before working at Foster+Partners architects as a materials researcher. During this time he worked closely with clients and industrial partners to research and develop novel materials and manufacturing processes for use on projects including the Apple Campus, Apple Stores and Bloomberg Headquarters.

George has also worked in research at the Centre for Natural Material Innovation at the University of Cambridge. The centre was established through a Leverhulme research programme grant of £1.75 million that brought together scientists, engineers, designers and architects to develop renewable, energy-efficient alternatives to traditional manufactured materials.

In 2017, George was commended in the Excellence in Structural Engineering Education Awards (IStructE) for his paper: The importance of making: Haptic feedback & intuition in the teaching of structures in Architecture, for group teaching work with second year undergraduates at the The Cass School of Architecture.

George has taught nationally at Queen Mary University of London and internationally at the Howest Industrial Design Centre, Belgium.
