Our Story
The first steps on a long road to a more equitable future

Legacy was conceived in early 2020, from a sincere desire to live in a fairer and kinder world. With a focus on trying to improve underlying causes to society’s bigger problems, we’re aiming to develop innovative solutions in our growing areas of expertise and influence. We each have a role to play in forging a better tomorrow, and at Legacy, we believe that fostering thriving communities—built on equality, empathy, and truth—is the best place to start.

Led by Founder/CEO & Chief Creative Payam Shohadai, along with COO Grady Gamble, we’re assembling a team to create the content, technology, and products to support these causes.
