With a love of sports and entertainment, Amir has attended over 1000 live events! Amir had the idea for seatXchange while attending a game where a series of bad circumstances turned into one of the best fan experiences of his life – he was able to switch sides at halftime and watch his team drive on offense the entire game. Amir quickly realized there are countless reasons why fans may want to exchange seats during an event, but there was no platform to do it. Amir is an avid Lakers and Dodgers fan.
