About Dinosaur George

Dinosaur George


“Dinosaur George” Blasing is a self taught paleontologist and animal behaviorist with more than 35 years of study and research. Blasing is a public speaker, writer and television personality who has performed live to over 2 million people and has lectured in over 2800 museums, schools and public events.

Dinosaur George has spent over 17 years teaching Elementary, Intermediate and Middle school students about the amazing creatures that once ruled our planet. And with the addition of  his latest program, Museum in the Classroom
, he is now able to bring an entire museum to the schools he visits.

When Dinosaur George is not visiting schools or performing in public events, he volunteers hundreds of hours appearing in children’s hospitals and youth oriented events throughout Texas.

 Prior to 1997, George was District Sales Director for Best Products Inc. He was responsible for 18 store with a per annum income of over 185 million. His responsibilities included overseeing all aspects of sales, profitability, expense controls and personnel management. 

 Using vacation time and personal leave, Blasing volunteered numerous hours traveling to elementary schools to teach children about dinosaurs and other prehistoric life. After visiting a school in San Antonio, he received a letter from a parent whose son was only 6 years old. The child had previously stated that he wanted to join a gang and drop out of school.  After attending Dinosaur Georges’ lecture he came home and announced that he wanted to do better in school so he could become a “Dinosaur Man” like Dinosaur George.  The impact of this letter caused Mr. Blasing to reevaluate his life’s priorities.  “If I can change one life by lecturing to children”, he said, “then I need to find a way to become more available to do so.”

 In 1997 George Blasing quit his lucrative retail career and dedicated his life to educating children and adults about the amazing creatures that once ruled our planet.  In August of 1997, he opened his own chain of retail stores called “Dinosaur World”. Through these science/education based stores Blasing was able to dedicate more time to public speaking.

 In 2006 he closed “Dinosaur World” and began speaking full time.  Using an enthusiastic and often humorous approach to speaking, Dinosaur George soon became one of the most sought after public speakers in Texas.

 In 2007 he co-created, wrote and hosted a 12 part series for The History Channel called Jurassic Fight Club and is currently involved in the creation of a several new television projects.

 In 2009 he was named as a member of the Board of Directors for the Proctor Museum of Natural History in Houston Texas.

 In 2010 he was honored with an appointment as “Guest Curator of Paleontology” for the Witte Museum, located in San Antonio.

In 2011 he set out on a tour of Texas libraries to promote reading. He performed
in 67 libraries and spoke to nearly 10,000 children and adults.  

In 2012 he teamed up with San Antonio PBS affiliate "KLRN" to create a traveling exhibit call "Museum in the Classroom". This exhibit is designed to turn a school gymnasium into a natural history museum. Targeting low income schools and those located in rural areas, Museum in the Classroom will expose children of all ages to the wonders of science.

  With his vast knowledge of prehistoric life, expertise in animal behaviors, and powerful on camera presence, Dinosaur George is a highly respected and sought after public figure who shares his love of “all things prehistoric” with throngs of enthusiastic fans.
