Where I Go Out

Behind the Scenes

I’m equally indebted to
"I’m equally indebted to @jordansacct, who relentlessly trained with Mimi and I, enduring long hours, high stress and my mercurial nature for zero compensation. He was absolutely critical to our success, and did a fabulous job running our pass in Las Vegas. Thank you Jordan, we couldn’t have done it without you."
