At a young age, Ivan experienced music from both sides of the soundboard by playing the piano and bass guitar.  Later on, as musical tastes developed and the electronic scene took hold, Ivan broke through the music industry as a successful DJ in Miami and began featuring his skills at local events. His recognition as a DJ began to spread and afterwards Ivan was brought under the wing of mixing eningeer legend Jimmy Douglass.  Afterwards he began  producing music for A-list artists as his major focus. Experiencing the valuable lessons in music as a business, Ivan chose to advance by teaching others.
