Richard Smith is an artist, writer and speaker who received his first calling in life at the age of 21. That calling included a deeply passionate drive to raise the public's awareness on extraterrestrial intervention, ancient history and alien contact with lectures that have inspired a wide range of people from multiple and diverse backgrounds while serving as a platform for a growing global movement that began in New Egypt, New Jersey, at the Earth Mysteries and UFO/ET Conference in 2005.
Speaking publicly since the early Nineties, Richard Smith explores all things extraterrestrial as it relates to the human condition and will be discussing his own personal experiences with extraterrestrial beings such as the Crone (a female Preying Mantis), the Greys and the Reptilians along with the alien group he refers to as the Sisterhood. This is one of those rare moments not to be missed as he will be opening up to the public about his own personal experiences, an area of discussion not often revealed in the majority of his lectures and seminars.
Born in Tampa, Florida, Smith grew up in New York and began studying classical piano at the age of 11. In his early teens, he continued to perform and compete in musical recitals but his interests began moving in the direction of art and math, showing an unusually strong aptitude for both by his late teens. At the age of 21, his childhood memories came to the forefront in an eruption of cognitive awareness towards unearthly paranormal experiences, something that would start him down the path of total recall as he was confronted with a major decision that would forever alter the course of his life. Would it be the painted canvas or the musical composition? At the flip of a coin, the artist won and the musician receded into the background. The total recall he experienced represented his first major awakening and would reveal many secrets about his family’s lifelong connection to the arena of non-indigenous alien contact as well as the grander scope of extraterrestrial intervention, past and present.
In 1995, he came on the scene with his first solo exhibition, An Experiment in Humanity, at the Amelie A. Wallace Gallery, located at New York State’s Old Westbury campus, in which he showcased his unique body of work including paintings, mixed-media sculpture, installation work and brass etchings. The exhibition represented a concept, perspective and approach that had not been seen before. Its success gave birth to a new persona for Smith in the paranormal and esoteric communities.
On the night of the opening reception, a group of Japanese businessmen were in attendance with members of the local news media carefully examining Smith’s work with great enthusiasm. One of the businessmen looked in Smith’s direction and stated ‘you are the ufo teacher' and the name stuck. A year later, Smith adopted the term ufoteacher as his online identity, making it the foundational platform for what would become his official brand and site, ufoteacher.com.
In 1996, he graduated with high honors receiving the Certificate of Achievement Award for Outstanding Achievement at New York State University for his dedicated work with Extraterrestrial Intervention and Alien Abduction Phenomena. After finishing his college studies, Smith began experimenting with new avenues of expression, mainly poetry and prose, while focusing more so on his own personal perspective as a central theme. With An Experiment in Humanity serving as the initial inspiration, Smith created his own epic anthology of original and powerful free verse exposing his own intimate, enlightening and horrific experiences for the first time. An autobiographical account about extraterrestrial bloodlines, the age old struggle for civil rights and the raw passion of true love found amidst the backdrop of a hybrid war, Smith self-published the anthology in 1999 under the title Legions of Light / Armies of Darkness. Updated in 2005 with a special second edition, it was published through AuthorHouse and is currently available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble as well.
In 2007, Smith gave an exclusive presentation in Philadelphia at Temple University’s Pan-African Studies Community Education Program. Serving as a spearhead of hot button paranormal discussion, it has been circulating like wildfire ever since, resulting in an expanded comprehensive six-part radio series on Occult Science Radio in 2012 with media host Curtis Davis.
By the end of 2013, Richard Smith began attracting international recognition and interest from Europe, Asia and South America while laying the groundwork for what would become the Human Origins Conference, an annual event revealing the fascinating realms of Earth’s cosmology, human origins, ancient history and lost wisdom. Smith was also invited by the Moorish Science Temple of America to present his lecture in Toronto, Canada, at the Noble Drew Ali Day annual event in 2014. In June of 2015, he became a member of the Executive Committee for the New Mexico UFO and Paranormal Forum. By September of that year, he would publish his second book, The Moor, The Mason And The Alien: A Call To Action, and launch a brand new literary book series under the title The Vaulted Journals of UFOteacher.
Globally recognized for spearheading the Human Origins Revolution, Smith currently resides in Rio Rancho, New Mexico, with his wife Linda Smith. Working on his third book, he has been speaking worldwide with author events, interviews, lectures and conferences.You can contact Richard and Linda at their official web site, ufoteacher.com
