Are you a Ford or a Ferrari?


I absolutely loved FORD v FERRARI! This movie is a fast-paced, white-knuckle ride to the finish line!

It highlights the best of American ingenuity, following your passion and not doing business by committee.

I loved the focus on friendship whether in a marriage, between long term friends working to make a dream come true or a pit crew changing parts.

Now, I want to wear those glasses and drive real fast! Get your own pair of Beacon sunglasses by Entourage of 7 as seen in the brand new film,  FORD VS FERRARI.

Did you know that those same amazing sunglasses are also worn by Michael Douglas in Netflix’s THE KOMINSKY METHOD.

Do you want to drive REAL FAST?

At Dream Racing, I drove over 120mph in a Lamborghini Huracán GT with world famous driver Cédric Sbirrazzuoli as my instructor! This experience on a race track at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway has luxury vehicles, professional instructors & simulators. I absolutely LOVED it! Now I want to go back with my new sunglasses!


And YES! You should do the BMW Performance Driving Experience in California!

BMW is where I had my first ever professional driving experience with professional race car driver and instructor Christopher Hill. He was on a Car Racing Reality television show, won a formula race, competed and won in endurance racing and participated in the league of champions. After 23 years of competition and 17 years of teaching, he is the real deal!

I drove a variety of cars on their track including the 240, M4, X3, X5M and X6M. Christopher encouraged us to test the cars and push them to the limits. As he said, “They are not your cars and they are not your breaks, I want to hear them squeal!”

For the second part, we did a timed challenge in M3’s with a 440 horsepower competition package. The time-clock is sensitive to 1000th of second and I did finish second on the podium. I showed great improvement as my first lap was 39 seconds and my final lap was 30 seconds! I talked about the exciting driving in a segment for KTLA TV called Travel Smart: Chill and Thrill in Palm Springs
