I am a lawyer turned peacemaker and now devote my life to service to humanity. Whether working with life inmates in maximum security prisons or helping resolve international conflicts, my peacemaking and mediation skills work at the core of what it means to be human. I practice, teach, train, speak, write, and consult on emotional conflicts in all kinds of relationships.
