About David

Born in Los Angeles, I have worked in the entertainment industry for well over a decade. I’ve founded several successful companies and have since established close relationships with the biggest names in the business.

In 2008, I founded Levy Entertainment Group, LLC. and Levy Music Publishing, LLC. In 2010, I began the design process and construction of Studio Malibu, a world-class studio and VIP event space located above Billionaire’s Beach, Malibu. Immediately after opening in 2012, we hosted Kesha and recorded her album “Warrior”, soon to follow were numerous productions for Britney Spears, Nicki Minaj, Zedd, One Direction among others.

In addition to producing & recording music, I have been directly involved in the production and post-production of feature films, television series & commercials with clients such as James Cameron, Ron Howard, Chris Hemsworth, Cindy Crawford and many more.

I’ve also produced many live-broadcast events and red carpet soirees. Most recently, I produced & hosted DiscoverMe 2015. A gathering of influencers from the entertainment, tech and finance sectors featuring guests such as: Shiza Shahid (Nobel Prize Winner/Malala Fund), Ted Schilowitz (20th Century Fox/RED), Mickey McManus (Maya), Brock Pierce (BitCoin), Ashley Dara (NASA/Made in Space) and more.

In working on the production of such events, I’ve also led key negotiations between brands and institutions such as City National Bank, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, DTS, Redbull, Cadillac and Toys for Tots. Topics of Negotiations have included sponsorships & affiliations, collaborative branding & promotions, celebrity talent booking, and more.

Within the first year of business, my efforts at Studio Malibu generated over half a million dollars in sales. To date, Studio Malibu has become one of the most exclusive studios and event spaces around the globe. If possible, I’d like to discuss how my companies or I might be of benefit to your brand or institution.
