- Aaron Lammer’s journey to Wall Street has been anything but traditional.
- Now a DeFi specialist for a crypto company, Lammer previously edited cookbooks and wrote music.
- He became interested in cryptos five years ago and now explains DeFi to financial professionals.
The writer of the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” theme song is now a DeFi specialist for a crypto trading company backed by Steven Cohen.
Aaron Lammer, forty years old, co-author of Kardashian song called “Morning” started his new job at quantum crypto trading firm Radkl in October, according to his LinkedIn profile. The company, launched in September, is personally backed by Cohen, the billionaire founder of hedge fund Point 72 Asset Management, The Wall Street Journal previously reported.
Lammer’s journey to Wall Street has been anything but traditional, according to Bloomberg, who was the first to report the news. He has written songs with Drake and Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, published cookbooks and launched a website for long-form journalism and a podcast to go with it.
He dove into the crypto world five years ago and in 2018 launched and hosted a podcast called “CoinTalk.”
After appearing on a Bloomberg podcast in May to discuss DeFi concepts, Radkl CEO Jim Greco took to Twitter to say he “learned a lot” and wanted to “chat,” Bloomberg reported .
The rise of Ethereum, a decentralized blockchain that writes smart contracts, and the so-called dApps that power DeFi have guided Lammer’s evolution in the crypto world, Bloomberg said. Today, when he attends games or birthday parties for his daughter, he often finds himself explaining DeFi to parents in the financial industry who know the term but not much else.
“My own curiosity drew me to crypto,” Lammer said in a message to Insider. “And the first development that really made me want to work in crypto was DeFi. So it’s a hobby turned job.”
