Early life

Born on Manhattan's Upper West Side, Ostrovsky attended Trevor Day School, Skidmore College, New York University and the State University of New York at Albany, where he studied journalism.


Early in his career, Ostrovsky worked on the E! Channel and was a member of the rap group Team Facelift.

He has contributed to Bloomberg Television and promoted Virgin Mobile, Burger King, Bud Light and Beats Electronics. In 2015, he launched the wine brand White Girl Rosé.[3] He hosted a radio show on Apple Music Beats 1 called "Money, Pizza, Respect" and released a book of the same name in 2015 with Grand Central Publishing.
