About

Let’s see… In a nut shell, I was born in Uganda, East Africa in 1976 and left in 1985 for London, England. I spent my teenage years and university days having a blast with friends and partied like a rock star. In 1996 I did a university exchange to Charlotte, North Carolina (US) where I started getting into the web. In 1998 I left the UK to travel around the world, and as a result started up my company Spunlogic with my old room mate Jeff Hilimire. My company mainly did web design and development and paid for much of my travels around the world. In 2000 we decided to “have a go” at pushing the company and I moved from Sydney to Atlanta to establish our first real office. In 2003 I met Tovah Ackerman, and in 2005 we got married and now have 3 dogs and a beautiful daughter, Nina. In March 2008 I sold my company (80 employees) to Halyard Capital. The company is now called Engauge who I work for, and has over 275 employees. My wife is more beautiful every day, life is wonderful and gets better everyday as we watch our daughter grow up.

Oh, I’m also involved in the Angel investment space with a fund I created called No Limit Ventures. I’m a board member of Everybody Wins! Atlanta and Cooleaf, and continue to be involved with early stage start-ups and entrepreneurs.

Specialties: Executive leadership, Process design and strategy, marketing strategy, operations, technical expertise, infrastructure, partnerships, media services, start-ups, M&A.

That about covers the highlights.

  2. Raj, it was a pleasure reading about your RV trip, funny i’m 3 miles from you in ViHi, and looking to buy a 364TS as well. How has your experience been since you bought it and would you buy it again after what you know and experienced? thanks for your feedback.
