I am goal- driven, hard working and I value integrity as integral to all I do. I am a third-generation car fanatic & I am a problem solver and enjoy analyzing any situation and finding the best possible solution.

TRILOGY, LA JOLLA
Tickets have been selling fast to Hanukkah X: Fire & Stars! Get yours before we sell out!
Soul X + Audrey’s Tent present to you this special experience at Trilogy in La Jolla on the 1st night of Hanukkah. Join us for a transformative guided experience as we celebrate Hanukkah, journeying through fire, lights, stars, and sound as we integrate its powerful message of light over darkness into our lives.
We will begin on the Rooftop with a fire show & Menorah lighting.
Because this night occurs on the Winter Solstice – the darkest day of the year, we will observe the stars through a telescope and learn about the galaxy with Cosmologist & Professor of Physics at UCSD, Brian Keating.
We will then head down to the 2nd floor for a private guided Sound Meditation on 8 messages of wisdom we can take into our lives from the 8 lights of the Menorah, guided by Rabbi Bortz and John Beck.
We will cap off our event with an LED Movement Show, Dreidel Tournament, and special parting gifts. Happy Hanukkah!
Special Gift: The first 35 attendees will be gifted a free copy of the book: Losing The Nobel Prize: A Story of Cosmology, Ambition, and the Perils of Science’s Highest Honor.
