George Georgievski’s lunchbox creations have captivated people worldwide, with American Express Magazine crowning him the ‘most inspiring lunch creator in the world’. Known as ‘the school lunchbox dad’, George is an engaged parent to two daughters. He is a prankster and an unashamed ‘dad joker’ who has taken to social media to share his inspirational bento-style lunchbox creations.
