Speaker

Michael Wallis is a story teller who transports audiences across time and space to
spend memorable moments:

- bidding on leases beneath the Million Dollar Elm with oil baron Frank Phillips
- on the prowl with Pretty Boy Floyd
- making a stand on Alcatraz with Cherokee Chief Wilma Mankiller
- scoring a touchdown with football enigma Joe Don Looney
- rolling west with the Okies along Route 66, the Mother Road
- cheering Bill Pickett as he bulldogs a steer during a 101 Ranch Real Wild West Show

Wallis has spoken out for gains on behalf of nonprofit organizations and for historical-preservation efforts successfully resolved. He has appeared as a keynote speaker for major corporations, national conventions, and university audiences across the nation. His voice — used with electronic advertising — helped bring thousands through the doors of Gilcrease Museum (Tulsa, Oklahoma) to experience the splendor of Thomas Moran’s art.

Wallis has been interviewed on television and radio stations throughout the country and abroad, including National Public Radio and the BBC. His speaking ability also extends to commercial videos, voice-overs, and public speaking. He served as a consultant to Pixar Studios in the development of the animated feature film Cars and also was the voice of the Sheriff of Radiator Springs in the Movie.
