Our Story – David and Hyra George
David George and his wife Hyra were the founders and owners of George & Goldberg Design Associates, a design and custom fabrication company that created scenery and environments for the entertainment industry for 18 years.
“G&G” employed a staff of over 70 designers, engineers and craftsmen on a four-acre campus based in southern California. International projects they designed and/or created works for include Boeing Press and Technology Summits (London, Paris, Berlin, Rome, Tokyo, Abu Dhabi and Madrid), Pepsi W2K Milenium Concert (Bombay), Nagano Winter Olympic Games (Japan), Yanni Concert Events (Beijing, Taj Mahal), and Volkswagen (Berlin).
Nationally a small sampling of their projects include scenery, interactive displays, exhibits and permanent structural installations for Epcot Center, The Super Bowl half-time shows, Sonicare, The Getty Center, Mattel, Honda, Disney’s California Adventure and Disneyland, as well as the design and fabrication of scenery for hundreds of special events and world concert tours including Barbra Streisand, U2, Bette Midler, The Who, Jay Z, The Rolling Stones, Neil Diamond, Yanni, Tim McGraw and Neil Young.
In 2007 they “exited stage left” from “G&G” to focus full time on the design/ consulting and producing services of MILLROCK PRODUCTIONS LLC which they founded in 1988.
Via Millrock they have produced the annual international conferences for Forever Living Products, world-wide events for Assembly of God and permanent installations for Westfield Mall San Francisco.
