After spending over a decade as a successful information technology consultant and entrepreneur, Arno Michaelis is now a speaker, author of My Life After Hate, and very fortunate to be able to share his ongoing process of character development as an educator working with Serve 2 Unite. S2U engages students creatively with a global network of peacemakers and mentors in partnership with Against Violent Extremism, the Forgiveness Project, Search for Common Ground, and Over My Shoulder Foundation. Michaelis has traveled to Abu Dhabi, Bosnia, Denmark, Ireland, Norway, Poland, Sweden, the United Kingdom, and all across the United States working in counterviolent extremism efforts. He has appeared on The View, CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360, the BBC, and MSNBC and in The New York Times, the Huffington Post, and The Washington Post. His workshops and keynotes leverage the noble qualities of compassion, curiosity, and kindness to engage all human beings, building foundations for diversity appreciation and cultural agility. He also enjoys spending time with his daughter, art, music, and all forms of fearless creative expression, along with climbing things, being underwater, and the wonderful natural beauty of our planet Earth.
