“Experience is that marvelous thing that enables you to recognize a mistake when you make it again”
-Franklin P. Jones
Mistakes are inevitable. I have been lucky enough to grow from a series of challenges and unavoidable mistakes connected with experimentation. Four years ago, I left my job to pursue new ventures. Unfortunately, I initially lacked the experience necessary to achieve immediate success. However, I quickly developed new skills and learned to apply critical thinking to overcome seemingly infinite setbacks. This insight has provided me with the mental toughness and resourcefulness needed to face new obstacles and launch me towards realizing my full potential.
Entrepreneurship can be isolating. At its worst, it is an emotional roller coaster that breeds self-doubt. On the other hand, discovering new skills to achieve success provides an unparalleled sense of satisfaction. My journey at House of Vora helped me shape new skills including: 1) product and business development; 2) mechanical design, assembly, and manufacture; 3) 3D printing; 4) electrical design and manufacture; 5) firmware development; and 6) domestic and international sourcing.

2013 – Present
As an Independent Consultant, I am driven to overcome challenges and further my principle goal to create an environment of mutual benefit. Whether a challenge relates to products, payments, knowledge, or exposure, I firmly believe that all parties should achieve their intended objectives. Consequently, I have learned to generate and develop a clear and precise set of requirements in connection with a client’s needs. As a result, final delivery always exceeds expectations.
Edison provided a unique platform to advance my education. Under the guidance of a transformative mentor, I had the opportunity to spearhead a $5M, DOE funded, Smart Grid project spanning across six organizations. This project drastically reduced customer service interruptions, advancing a top three initiative within the company. In addition, I was chosen for a young executive leadership program, joining forty colleagues from Edison’s 18K member organization.
2008 – 2008
Through D-Link’s Product launch I was exposed to the reality that launching a product is a complex task requiring coordination of many individuals. It is clear that nothing worth doing is easy. The opportunity to face these challenges corresponds directly with the following experiences: coordination of multiple departments, development of pricing structures, management of account relationships, and the presentation of technical product briefs to various cross-functional teams.

Raj redid the website for my optometry office and he did an incredible job! The website was exactly what we were hoping for and we receive compliments on it from our patients regularly. Working with Raj was a pleasure. His knowledge and expertise in the area made the process run smoothly and efficiently. We couldn't be happier with the outcome!
Dr. Julie Bhindi, Optometrist at Eyesite Optometry, Website Client
Only rarely are engineered products functional and aesthetically pleasing in totality with all eyes, senses, and experiences. I have never met another who delivers on all such rare occasions. Raj also recreated our website and I have received more compliments since it's recent re-launch than I have after eight years in business.
Wess Gates, Founder and CEO at Edtric, Consulting and Website Client
Raj was able to incorporate the color schemes and overall layout exactly how we pictured it. He showed several drafts of the website before our final launch and was very patient in putting our ideas together. We have received many compliments from patients on the setup as well as the site being user friendly. Thanks again!
