Dasha grew up in the communist Czechoslovakia, in a family of a dissident writer and a family therapist. Hence she learned to smuggle books and offer unwanted relationship advice from young age. She changed hairstyles and hobbies often from horseback riding, athletics, tap, modern and folk dance, through theatre, singing, boxing, skiing, to road biking, painting, guitar, piano. Got an MA in political science and decided to change the world through her work in a human rights group in native Bratislava. She changed her mind instead and came to Boston to get a doctorate. Now she works as a mediator in ethnic conflicts in unpronounceable places at the end of the world.
