Amad has worked in the e-commerce and online marketing world since 2002. He started as an eBay seller, then slowly graduated to building and marketing his own websites and consulting others to do the same. He founded Merchant Maverick out of frustration with all the misinformation and shady tactics that he encountered when trying to find a merchant account for his and his client's businesses. In his spare time, he's usually outdoors exercising, trail running, kayaking, paddle boarding, and anything else that requires the sun, the ocean, or some dirt. If he's not outside, then he's probably reading a book…or two…or 10.
