Bio

Michael Hingson is an internationally acclaimed public speaker who lives and works daily at the intersection of entertainment, education, and technology. Michael Hingsons riveting personal story of heroism will leave audiences inspired and empowered.

Michael Hingson is a #1 New York Times best-selling author, technologist and motivational speaker. Michael, blind since birth, survived the 9/11 terrorist attacks with the help of his guide dog, Roselle. This story of teamwork and his indomitable will to live and thrive is the subject of his best-selling book, Thunder Dog and the major motion picture currently in production, coming in September 2013.

Michael Hingson and his guide dog, Roselle, saved dozens of lives by guiding him and his co-workers down 78 floors and out of Tower One just before it collapsed on 9/11. In Thunder Dog, Michael leads us through his moment-by-moment account from inside the tower. The book is also an inspiring look at Michaels accomplishments in life. Sadly, Roselle passed away in July 2011 but posthumously won the American Humane Association Hero Dog Award for 2012 in a star-studded gala in Beverly Hills, and televised in a special feature presentation on Hallmark Channel.

Despite being blind all his life, Michael has a masters degree in physics from University of California Irvine and is an accomplished technologist. Michael has worked with inventor, futurist, Ray Kurzweil for more than 30 years and was instrumental in the development of the first reading machine for the blind. Today, the Kurzweil brand is the preeminent name in educational software and technology for students with disabilities for which Michael is a national sales managerimproving the lives of children, students and adults with physical and learning disabilities through assistive technologies. Michael Hingson has a deep commitment to education and is Ambassador for the National Braille Literacy Campaign and also serves as Ambassador for the American Humane Associations Hero Dog Awards. Innovative Speakers Network named Michael Hingson one of Americas top 10 educational speakers. Michael is a member of NACA and a member of the National Speakers Association.

In countless TV and radio appearances, newspaper features and magazine articles, Michael Hingson does much more than recount his 9-11 story; he continuously explores the broader lessons of his life and experiences as a blind person in todays world and shares these lessons to educate, inspire and empower audiences world-wide. Michael has appeared on Larry King five times, and other major national broadcasts such as the Today Show, Fox and Friends, the 700 Club, Joy Behar, Discovery Channel, Animal Planet, and the Hallmark Channel.
