    TIKI Claus-Martin Denny 2.0

    Company holiday party at Bali Hai. How can it possibly get better? DESI....DO IT. Made the night magical for all our guests, where we would have been silently staring at each other for hours. Beyond professional at every step, and always had our event carved out of his soul and placed in the land of Exotica.
