SPEAKING

I speak regularly to lineage societies, community groups, historical societies, teachers, and lifelong learners.

I most often talk about pirates and privateers or the American Revolution and the Founding Fathers, but my interests range widely and I can present a fun and informative lecture on a variety of topics.

Contact me at davidheadphd@gmail.com to arrange a talk to your group.
