Jordan’s passion for skating videography began after performing in a produced-for-TV skating show. He noticed the need for a ‘skating cameraman’, with trained eyes and abilities to gracefully compose figure skating to video. Jordan uses his experience as a dancer and an athlete to give him an edge over other trained camera operators, whether on or off the ice. His online videos, labeled as “On Ice Perspectives,” have over 100K followers across social media and receive millions of views a month.
Professionally, Jordan has filmed for ITV’s ‘Dancing On Ice’ in the UK, as the first ever skating camera operator for a live televised competition, skating with a bespoke broadcast rig for over 7 million viewers. Other camerawork includes filming for Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir’s ‘The Thank You Canada Tour’, IMG’s 'Stars On Ice’, Bell Media’s ‘The Sports Network’, PBS’s ‘The World of Ice Dance International’, Cirque Du Soleil’s ‘Crystal’, and many more. He has filmed for documentaries like GO FIGURE: The Randy Gardner Story, Nathan Birch’s The Next Ice Age, and an untitled documentary centered around LGBTQ figure skaters in New York. Elsewhere, Jordan has filmed personal projects with Olympians such as Michelle Kwan, Adam Rippon, Papadakis/Cizeron, and multiple World Champion synchronized skating teams. Other videography credits include Naadam Co.’s Spring 2018 Fashion Video Shoot and various dance classes for New York City dancers and choreographers.

While studying card counting, Sal came across memory techniques (mnemonics) used by advantage players and cheats to increase their odds of winning at blackjack. Not only can Piacente perform amazing casino-related mnemonic stunts, but he also teaches others to improve their information retention for everyday life. His memory book collection spans centuries, with his oldest book dating back to the Italian Renaissance. Though Sal “the Hitman” Piacente is a consummate authority on casino scams and memory, his thirst for knowledge is never satisfied.
