Hi, my name is Raad

Me quickly

I’m the Founder / CEO of Lawtrades and LeanFi. They are platforms that help knowledge workers earn a living online.

I graduated from the University at Buffalo Law School and then moved to Silicon Valley to do startups and now back in NYC.

I also record music, make videos, skateboard, and invest in startups.

Passionately curious, compulsively minimalist. I like making old things easier, and new things possible.

NYC native, I live in Long Island City.
