My hope is for all action to be governed by a principle of love. For this to be systematic, I believe, requires pursuing equality, compassion, empathy, sustainability, sacrifice, courage, and wisdom; in short, I think that a genuine principle of love must encompass the whole person over an entire lifetime. While this is certainly not actualizable in any one person, in a single life-time, or even over the course of human history, it remains that highest call through which humanity has the brightest future.
My heart is particularly for those whose circumstances make them uniquely vulnerable. Over the past four years, I have focussed on refugee services (Chicago, Berlin, Columbia, and New York; 2015-19), which includes welcoming refugees, aiding their transition, and has included testifying before state senators on behalf of national refugee services against the passage of unethical state law (2016). Other work has included successfully co-designing a café where anyone in need can come for free, high-quality coffee and relax in an aesthetically inviting atmosphere.
