He is a native of San Diego and a graduate of the University of Colorado, Boulder. After spending considerable time in the Middle East doing archaeological work, he authored the book Peace in the Middle East.

Recently, George has proposed a sweeping plan to address the increasing homelessness problem in San Diego called “Sunbreak Ranch.” The Sunbreak Comprehensive Plan is designed to IMMEDIATELY initiate a viable solution to the homeless humanitarian crisis that is now eating San Diego alive – physically, emotionally, and financially.
George steadfastly remains an independent minded idea person and is not affiliated with any political party or political movement.
Mullen has been a dedicated member of Rotary International since 1988, is a Past President of the San Diego Mission Valley Rotary Club, and is currently the Program Chair for the San Diego Downtown Breakfast Rotary Club.
