Are you a kid, or just a kid at heart? Does the thought of a T-Rex on the hunt get your heart racing? Ever wonder what those plates on a Stegosaurus were really for? Well, me too! Dinosaurs are my passion and I’ve been studying them since I was five years old, and if you’re in Nevada, Utah, Arizona, or Southern California, I’d like to share that passion with you and your organization.
Cap’n Dave Eisenstein has a passion for dinosaurs. He’s studied these prehistoric beasts since he was five years old and is still pursuing knowledge about them to
this very day.
In September of 2005 Dave retired from 20 years of service with the United States Air Force. While in the Air Force Cap’n Dave logged over 2000 hours flight time in the EC-130H and T-43 aircraft. His skills as a teacher were honed with over 12
years experience as a military instructor. He developed a funny, audience-friendly delivery style and a knack for making highly technical and scientific subjects easily
understood by all ages. His teaching awards include “Instructor of the Year” for the Naval Technical Training Center, Pensacola, Florida as well as the Association of Old Crows (an international professional organization dedicated to Electronic
Warfare) Training Award as best Electronic Warfare Teacher in the entire Department of Defense.
Cap’n Dave’s love for dinosaurs lead him in 1999 to be associated with Dinosaur World, a company owned by his friend Dinosaur George Blasing, in San Antonio, Texas. Dave started first as a participant in the organization’s paleontological programs, then as an employee of Dinosaur World and then finally as the corporate Vice President and co-owner. While part of this company Dave became a skilled
paleontologal field tech as well as a highly competent preparer of fossils. Cap’n Dave was one of the stars of Dinosaur World’s DVD of “Dinosaur George’s Guide to Prehistoric Life” as well as one of the characters in the Dinosaur George line of educational comic books. Cap’n Dave and Dinosaur George closed Dinosaur World shortly after Dave moved to Las Vegas and both are pursuing their own projects, although they still collaborate on events from time to time.
In late 2006 Cap’n Dave opened his own dinosaur business;
Cap’n Dave’s Dinosaur Lectures & Shows and has spoken to thousands of people throughout Utah, Nevada and Arizona. Over the years Cap'n Dave has been involved in numerous Paleontological digs in Texas and Nevada.
