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

I’d love to be able to have dinner with John Muir mainly because of his ability to drive positive environmental change in a time that was so focused on production. Also, I’m certain he would have some unreal stories from the backcountry.

What motivates you to create social impact?

The ability to base a career on helping those less fortunately than I constantly motivates me to create positive social impact.
