Storyteller Bios: 

Jason Ashkenazi is the owner of of SOHO Hair Studio in Tucson. Jason has spent over a decade working for product companies and traveling nationally in the beauty industry. He is also the owner of Bubble Hair Philosophy, a new hair product line distributed out of Tucson. Best known for being a stylist at the Emmy Awards. Jason and SOHO Hair Studio have also graced the pages of national publications like; Allure Magazine, Marie Claire, In Style and People Magazine. Jason is a first time story teller at Odyssey. He reluctantly agreed to do it citing that "it is a little too late for me to go out." His idea of a night out is getting engulfed in a nerdy documentary on Netflix while covered in Cheetos dust. Sometimes he works out at night too, but not very often. Jason is in a long term relationship with his girlfriend and is an expert in dodging the "marriage talk". They have a three year old son together, Jack, and an overweight dalmatian named Marshall that Jason had WAY before he met his girlfriend...

Curator Bios:

Lori Riegel has worked in the Jewish community for over 20 years, in various capacities, including education director, pastoral care and marketing.  She is pursuing a PhD in Educational Leadership, and recently graduated with a Masters in Jewish Education.  Due to the rigorous demands of the PhD program, this might be the last time you see Lori out in public for a while, as she spends most nights doing homework.  Lori is the proud mother of an amazing, talented and kind 17 year old daughter.  She is involved in greyhound rescue and writes a food blog called “Kosher Chic.”  Lori serves on the board of StoryArts Group, Inc.

Robert Roman, also known as “Mr. Music,” has been working in the recreational music business for over 20 years, most recently as a regional manager for Fletcher Music Centers.  He plays guitar, piano, organ and writes music.  He is the proud father of a 17 year old daughter and was recently coerced into adopting two rescue dogs by a very persuasive “friend.”  Robert dreams of the day he will be able to support himself solely as a singer-songwriter.  He enjoys being the class clown, winning arguments and all things Apple.

Storytelling is a way to make connections with diverse and different people that you may not meet in your every day life. Because these stories are from our lives they may be amazing, messy, enlightening, disturbing, and entertaining . . . and more.


Six invited storytellers have ten minutes to talk about a specific theme. The stories are not read or memorized, they are told from the life experiences and creativity of the teller.
