If you could have dinner with 1 person who you regard as a leader, who would it be and why?

Gandolf, because I’d want to learn from him and adventure with him since he has every amazing quality you’d ever want from a leader and a mentor: prodigious wisdom, unrivaled intellect and knowledge, respect for and understanding of all creatures, grandfatherly relatability, and he can do magic which is awesome — we could all take a tip from Gandolf, and the ideal his character stands for.

If you could create your own social enterprise, what would it be and why?

I would create an organization with the goal of inspiring the masses to engage in progressive and productive social action of all kinds through the creation, compilation, and dissemination of compelling information, messages, and resources for action.
