About Quiet Riot


Quiet Riot is a team of two brothers — Bill Mettler, Executive Storyteller, and David Mettler, Person in Charge of Noises and Opportunities.

The brothers’ collection of life experiences has inspired their repertoire. In their combined experience they have: circled the globe, led rock climbing expeditions, harvested cotton in Israel, commanded USAF satellites, worked on off-shore oil rigs, directed a wilderness school, built a courthouse in Australia, flew airplanes, barely escaped indoctrination into a Moonie commune, worked with drug addicts, the homeless, the CIA, and taught 2nd grade.


They have degrees in aerospace engineering and natural resource management. They have studied acting, improvisation, mime, jazz and modern dance, ballet, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, motivational psychology, Continuous Quality Improvement, Eco-Economics, sustainability, PermaCulture, mindfulness and interconnection with: self, others, and our planet.

They have appeared on both public and commercial television. Some of their presenters include: Lincoln Center, NASA Goddard Space Center, The Earth Policy Institute,  3M Company, Cigna Corporation, DuPont, Lucent Technologies, IBM, , the UN Earth Charter Summits, US Army, Navy, Air Force, Duke, University of Pennsylvania and the National Storytelling Festival.
