10 years, 8 countries, and 22,000 miles later, A Chance for Peace is here!
Long before Trump, ‘A Chance for Peace’ set out to prove that peace is possible, even in the face of a divisive election. It later went on to become the center of grassroots peace movement, inspiring thousands to end generations of divisiveness in Kibera, Kenya. Now, ‘A Chance for Peace’ is ready to take on the world.
I tell stories. What’s yours?
Okay, I’ll go first then. I’m a documentary filmmaker and peace advocate that’s traveled the world to prove that peace is possible – even in the most unlikely spaces. With 10+ years of immersive experience under my belt, I use storytelling, design, social media, and community building to create safe spaces where we can bring more peace, love, and radical compassion into our lives.
Strength in Our Stories
I’ve interviewed everyone from Buddhist monks to gang members, 10-year-old activists and political prisoners. No matter where we come from, the desire for peace is universal. So when Africa’s largest slum was set to descend into passions of divisiveness and discrimination, my team and I launched a peace initiative that inspired even members of the Taliban to commit to peace. One doesn’t accomplish all that without first listening. And now more than ever, I’m ready to share the miracles I’ve witnessed in peacemaking. Calling on my skills as a podcast producer, filmmaker, writer, and consultant, I bring peace into everything I do. So let’s explore – and find the strength in our stories.
