Before Venice, Oliva founded his namesake law firm in 2017 and has since worked through legal, business, and admin issues with his clients while also providing consulting services. He is the recipient of a platinum record for his legal work on Ariana Grande’s two-time Grammy-nominated album, Positions, on behalf of JustAcoustic.
“I’m joining visionaries Troy Carter and Suzy Ryoo along with an incredibly talented, kind, passionate team of music lovers and professionals at Venice,” says Dani Oliva. “I’ve spent the past twenty years helping music creators build infrastructure to support their careers, and I’m excited to continue to do so through community, data, and technology-driven solutions at Venice.”
