Explain Geometric distribution, Advanced Statistics

Geometric distribution: The probability distribution of the number of trials (N) before the first success in the sequence of Bernoulli trials. Specifically the distribution is can be given as

here p is the probability of the success on the each trial. The variance, skewness mean, and kurtosis of the distribution can be described as follows:
