we have built a center!

I'm very excited to announce that we have built our first Optimist Center in Woodstock, Vermont! It is designed for entrepreneurs, workshops and community programs and includes spaces for coworking, a retreat space and a studio.



join us from anywhere

If you aren't near our center, no worries! Our Optimist Program is open worldwide. It includes access to every class I have ever taught, monthly calls and much more. I'd love to see you there. 


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 amazing things happen. I was approached by the Town of Woodstock to create something just like this and we had the chance to build it right next store to the Soulfully Good Cafe!

 My wife Tunga and I also dream of building another 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
