One of my driving forces has always been a burning desire to experience life in all its complexity and wonder. Whether living in different countries such as Pakistan, Madagascar, Germany and the United States while growing up, or racing down the Autobahn at 105 mph and trying sports such as skydiving, it’s the urge to make the most of every day that formed my personal motto “attack life, wait for nothing.”
This motto also translated into a love of knowledge, and I earned a Master of Arts (MAIS) in Public Relations/Conflict Analysis and Resolution, as well as a Juris Doctor. In addition to being a licensed attorney and trained mediator, I’m bilingual in English and German, know enough French to get by in an emergency, and hope to learn Spanish one day.
I’m also the Founder and President of CiviiNation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization taking a stand for civil digital discourse.
On my blog, I write about cybercivility, online communications, law, and other subjects.
