Speaking is a favorite aspect of my career

With a decade of public speaking experience, I've lectured and presented at colleges, universities, private clubs, elementary schools, restaurants, fundraisers and community events. 

My talks have been featured at the Explorers Club Headquarters in New York City, Cosmopolitan Club of Philadelphia, Library of Congress, University of Vienna and the Research Institute of Venezuela. 

I tell my personal story and share a unique, one-of-a-kind perspective on Yanomami culture, traveling through the Amazon, groundbreaking biological research, and the need to protect indigenous rights and their ancestral lands.


David Good Skyped with my Cultural Anthropology last year and the students LOVED him and his story. After his talk many students were hooked on anthropology. Thank you, David. I retired this year but that was one of the highlights of my career.

Hosting David Good as a guest speaker was the highlight of my teaching career! David’s story captivated an audience of over three hundred high school students for over an hour. His speaking style was dynamic and engaging as he recounted his incredible life story. From his struggles as an adolescent youth to his incredible journey to reconnect with his indigenous family in South America, he really connected well with our students. It was one of the most educational and inspirational assemblies I have ever attended. Students benefited tremendously from David’s life lessons as well as learning about indigenous cultures and taking action to protect them. His presentation and continued collaboration with our school provides the meaningful learning opportunities all educators are striving for!
