While at school, Preston studied music technology under the direction of professor Steve Nalepa. Through his studies he became fluid at using Ableton, Logic, Pro Tools, Garage Band and Reason. Post grad, Preston spends his time writing and performing live electronic music with his band Virtual Boy as well as running his weekly beat-cipher series, TeamSupreme.

Parvizi can also be seen playing on stage as Virtual Boy’s touring bassist. Fun fact: Parvizi and TeamSupreme member Jonathan Stein first met at La Honda Music Camp in 2003 – a summer music retreat for Bay Area youth. Parvizi first met Mr. Carmack at the same institution the following year – before attending SF School of the Arts High School with him in 2006. Carmack and Parvizi played french horn and upright bass (respectively) together in the Symphony Orchestra at SOTA. "
