Career[edit]

DJing[edit]

Vice has the ability to switch between different types of music genres. He is known to perform on stage at some of the hottest clubs across the country for sold-out audiences in major cities.[2] Inspired by his many travels, Vice's music has the distinct ability to take listeners around the world to places such as Ibiza, Tokyo, London and Hong Kong, like he did with his hit song World Is My Playground. Whether it's a fast-paced EDM song or a relaxing poolside beat, there's a hint of adventure in every song that takes listeners to the various places that Vice has been to. His list of residences includes Marquee (Las Vegas and New York City), Liv Miami, and Create in Los Angeles, in addition to performances at Coachella, Nocturnal Wonderland, Electric Daisy Carnival and Ultra Miami.[3] Vice collaborates with a wide variety of artists, ranging from A-list to indie. He's worked with everyone from Rihanna, Kelly Rowland, Capital Cities, Linkin Park to Tegan & Sara.[4]

In April 2016, Vice was featured on fellow DJ Diplo's BBC Radio 1 show Diplo & Friends.[5] In October 2018, Vice joined "97.1 Amp Radio" KAMP in Los Angeles as host of an afternoon mixshow.[6]

CRSVR[edit]

Vice combined his passion for music along with his love of sneakers by setting up in-store DJ booths in the CRSVR Boutiques that he owns in California and Las Vegas, creating a unique retail experience.

Personal life[edit]

Vice currently lives in Los Angeles, CA and is married.
