All About You: Jeffrey Lin

This is Jeff. It would be weird if I put a picture of some random other dude on this post, right?

Meet Jeffrey Lin. He’s brand new on the Bayou – still in the plastic wrap and everything. Just kidding.

Jeff landed in New Orleans a few months ago with his startup, Lawyerfy, and his co-founder, Arjan Singh. Lawyerfy is aiming to change the way lawyers interact with clients and run law firms using technology. Their first product is a “client relationship management solution” and they’re accepting beta sign-ups here.

Jeff and Arjan are participating in the 2012 class of Launch Pad Ignition – don’t miss their pitch in two weeks at Launch Fest. [Shameless plug after shameless plug, did you get all of that?]

Jeff is from California and has previously worked for tech powerhouses including Sun Microsystems, Microsoft, and Adobe. He was excited to become a part of the Silicon Bayou startup community, and adds, “But nobody told me how awesome the people are here. They are nice, kind and really genuine.” Aw, shucks. I’ll let Jeff take it from here…


What is the most exciting thing you are working on right now?

Lawyerfy. It’s taking up all my sleep, eat and work out time. But would I trade it for anything else? Probably not.

What are you most excited about happening on the Silicon Bayou that you aren’t directly involved in?

Molly-O is back in NOLA. I had nothing to do with that. That’s a good thing right? [Editor’s note: YES.]

Tell us about your biggest failure.

Not jumping head first into my startup sooner. I was crippled by fear. To this date, I still consider that my biggest failure.

IYO, which institution is most due for disruption?  


What’s your favorite thing to do on a Sunday afternoon?

Love riding my Razor scooter(yes, razor scooter) around and checking out random stuff in my city.

If you were stuck on an elevator for two hours, what one person (dead or alive) would you choose to be stuck with?

Taylor Swift.

If you had to pick a drink to describe yourself (alcoholic or non-alcoholic) what would it be?

Red Bull.

Do not get in this guy's way.


If you had to eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Ice cream.

If you could live in any other time period, which would you choose?


The standard superpower dichotomy (fly or be invisible):


If you wrote a regular column for Silicon Bayou News what would it be about and what would you name it?

“We Need More Cow Bells”

The premise of it would be a series of articles that would talk about how everyday scenarios around us could be made that much better. For instance, if you rode the subway everyday, what would need to happen to make that ride that much better? Or if you had some chocolate fudge brownie, how can you make that even more awesome?

We don't see much of this stuff in the Bayou!
