In 2000, I left a successful career as a trial lawyer to become a peacemaker. My calling is to serve humanity, and I execute it at many levels. I am an award-winning author, teacher, and trainer and a highly experienced mediator. My work carries me from international work to helping people resolve deep interpersonal and ideological conflicts.
With Laurel Kaufer, I founded Prison of Peace in 2009. The Prison of Peace project has been the most profound peace training I have conducted thus far in my career. The project motivated me to expand the principles of Prison of Peace as much as possible so that every human wanting to learn the skills of peace may do so. To further this goal, I have written De-Escalate: How to Calm an Angry Person in 90 Seconds. I want everyone to have this book and learn these skills. That's why I am giving away the book free for the cost of shipping and handling
