Since 1993 Doug has been nationally recognized for bringing “history to life.” In more than 800 first person presentations of over 24 historical figures, including Stonewall Jackson, Henry Ford, Pablo Picasso, Nikola Tesla, and Gene Roddenberry.

In the last four years he has been the founder and Managing Artistic Director of Restless Artists’ Theatre. Mishler has taught American Cultural history for over 20 years and like his idol T. R., Doug believes there's plenty of time to grow up and get a “real job”—but later!
