I forgotten the meaning of sleep and am a full time Degenerate 


What does a typical day at work look like for you and what is your “normal” schedule?

“Wake up” check/respond to emails/messages. Get a light workout in and eat . Then get ready for dayclub by 10am. Check in and begin to walk up tables from 11-3:30 or 4pm, unless i am on late shift. Then we’re usually there until 5pm or last call at 6pm. Head home have another bite to eat and either take a nap or get another workout in before I get ready for the nightclub at 10pm and basically do the same thing for another 4-6 more hours.

10-15 minutes


How many nights a week do you go out (to a club)?

It’s what I’m best at, genuinely caring for people’s entertainment and their experience at my or any other venue in vegas. Selling fun and a great time. What’s not to enjoy about that?!

Sometimes drinking with clients gets a little too much and takes a negative toll, but other than that not much!
