The IVY Podcast

Jun 18, 2017

A Florida native, David hit it big when he was tapped to create a nightclub in Jeff Soffer’s billion-dollar revamping of the Fontainebleau Hotel, which led to the creation of LIV, now one of the most successful nightclubs in the country. Since then he has gone on to create some of the most well-known venues such as LIV, Story, Komodo, and the recently opened Upstairs at OTLA. David is also credited by Rolling Stone magazine as being one of the most important people in bringing electronic dance music to nightclubs in America after he was inspired by the scene in Ibiza, Spain. In this illuminating discussion on the power of resilience, creativity, and passion, David shared his insights on developing projects that converge at the apex of commercial success and entertainment brilliance.
