Karl Schonborn has earned a living using his voice as a public speaker, even though it once sounded nasal and snuffly as cleft-palate voices often do. Besides using his voice to narrate documentaries and interview guests on TV shows, Schonborn has lectured and spoken to thousands of students in his career as a university professor.

Schonborn’s experience of being bullied as a child motivated him to study violence of all sorts—from schoolyard incidents to international ones. He’s written four books over the years, some with recommendations about how teachers, police—and even U.N. peacekeeping troops—can more effectively deal with violence.

One might expect Schonborn, a product of the Ivy League * and a student of violence, to be one serious dude. However, his students know from painful experience that he’d like to be a stand-up comic one day…if not in this life, then in the next. With a wife and two kids and a mustache covering his upper-lip cleft palate scars, Schonborn passes for “normal” in a San Francisco suburb.
