Michael Hingson

New York Times Best-selling Author & International Speaker

Michael Hingson is a New York Times best-selling author and international lecturer. Michael, blind since birth, survived the 9/11 attacks with the help of his guide dog Roselle. This story is the subject of his best-selling book,Thunder Dog.

Hingson gives over 100 presentations around the world each year speaking to influential groups such as Exxon Mobile, AT&T, Federal Express, Scripps College, Rutgers University, Children’s Hospital, and the American Red Cross just to name a few. Hingson is Ambassador for the National Braille Literacy Campaign for the National Federation of the Blind and also serves as Ambassador for the American Humane Association’s 2012 Hero Dog Awards.

In countless TV and radio appearances, feature articles, and speaking engagements, Hingson does much more than simply tell his own 9-11 story; he continuously explores the broader lessons of his life and experiences inspiring and motivating audiences with topics such as:

  • Trust & Teamwork
  • Human-Animal Bond
  • Inclusion vs. Diversity
  • Strategies for the Future
  • Adapting in Challenging Times

In Michael’s work with Roselle’s Dream Foundation, he loves to bridge the gap with the understanding of the needs that blind people have and resources that are available to them, and those that may need to educated about these issues and have resources to help.
