Why Am I Doing This?

I've always dreamed of having my own cafe or bookstore: an inspiring third place like Ben Franklin's Junto where great people meet, collaborate and make things happen. I was approached by the Town of Woodstock to create something just like this and it looks like we will be creating it right next store to the Soulfully Good Cafe!

 My wife Tunga and I also dream of building a similar community center in Mongolia which can be both a women's empowerment center and learning center. We think the Optimist Center will be a wonderful opportunity to test the model.



Here are some of the organizations who have inspired me on this journey
