I am an attorney practicing exclusively as a family lawyer for over twenty-five years. As a teacher for a Los Angeles non-profit Mind Matters, I introduce high school juniors to essays and stories that inform and inspire them on their journeys from Los Angeles to the wider world, with writing exercises that help them reflect on their own experiences. I travel frequently and blog about how exposing ourselves to other cultures informs us about our differences and similarities in a world we must face together.
