DMV, welcome your new Community Manager: Trevor!
Trevor is joining OneTable after working the last year as a Sales Specialist and Technician for Apple and spent the previous year based in Beijing working as a travel photographer and content creator for the Chinese government while learning Mandarin. On the side, he loves cooking and has his chef page on Instagram, @ChefTrevPresents. He is incredibly excited to be joining OneTable’s team as DC’s Community Manager to continue expanding our human potential through Shabbat.
What brings you to OneTable?
The best things present themselves when you are not looking, and that is precisely my case with OneTable. OneTable sits at the epicenter of desire to connect and form a community, as well as the intersection of food and Jews. Previously, I have performed in positions that hand me a box with instructions and boundaries by which to operate. It is apparent that OneTable seems to do the opposite, so much so to implore team members to break barriers, test, and innovate. OneTable’s mission and foothold in the community, strategy, partnerships, and culture of personal and professional development presents an opportunity I am excited to explore further.
What one food are you bringing to a deserted island?
Easy, potatoes. White potatoes contain all essential amino acids you need to build proteins, repair cells, and fight diseases while sweet potatoes provide the necessary vitamin A and E.
What’re you most looking forward to doing in your new role?
I could not be more excited to be diving more in-depth in the DC Jewish community getting to know all of our hosts, having the opportunity to partner with brands, as well as form and deepen relationships with other organization working toward the goal of more meaningful Jewish experiences. Beyond that, the opportunity to host Shabbat dinners and events of my own to bring my ideas to life remains a wildly exciting opportunity.
What does Shabbat dinner mean to you?
Shabbat continues to remain my favorite holiday, why you may ask? Because it happens every week, Shabbat is a weekly invitation to embrace your surrounding community in total present state thinking.
