Roosevelt is presented by Adam “TR” Lindquist, a three-time national champion living history performer who portrays Roosevelt across the country. Lindquist says, “I am a frequent visitor to Nebraska and have made some wonderful friends here over the years. I am very excited to be returning to the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail.”
Interview and additional bio information:
Adam is available for interviews and is very comfortable and experienced with newspaper, radio and TV live shots. 
His work as Roosevelt takes him across the nation, including Washington D.C where he is often seen on Capitol Hill meeting on behalf of conservation issues. A typical year sees him speaking in front of 50,000+ as our 26th President. These include school children on the life of Theodore Roosevelt; presenting to businesses on leadership and; conservation organizations on the importance and protection of habitat. He is also a frequent speaker for the National Park Service and the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission.
Adam started portraying Roosevelt in 2007 for an event in Iowa. His uncanny resemblance to Roosevelt, matched to his engaging story telling soon led to invitations to recreate our 26th President for events across the country.
