Testimonials and Past Venues


“Dave Anderson’s presentations-we’ve seen three at our university-are always top quality.  Of course Dave brings his photographer’s eye to wherever he travels, but he also brings a thoughtful, reflective mind to the world of adventure.  Presented with all the advantages of a world adventurer, Dave’s shows are always tightly organized, carefully constructed, and clearly and articulately presented.  If you get a chance for Dave Anderson to talk to your group, no matter the subject, jump on it.”
Larry Soroka, Chair
Department of Expeditionary Studies
