Boorujy was born to a family of Catholics in New Jersey. Charmed by
his liberal attitudes and facility with numbers, they decided to keep
him. He grew up, left home and attended the University of Miami in order
to pursue a career as a marine biologist. Appropriately, in 1996 he
received a BFA degree in painting. From there he headed to Alaska where
his knowledge of fish served him well in gutting thousands of them.
He hitch-hiked around, worked as a carpenter and eventually ended up
in Northern California employed as a potter. As the years and the clay
passed through his hands, George thought about what else he would like
to do with his life. Grad school seemed like a pretty good option. So
he packed his bags and, aided by a profitable stop in Vegas, crossed
the deserts, mountains and lonesome plains of the continent to be embraced
by the welcoming arms of New York. Which, thank God, is not far from
George received a MFA from School of Visual Arts in 2002 and now lives
and works in Brooklyn.
