Raza spent his early childhood in Saudi Arabia until his parents relocated back to San Francisco. While in Saudi, a US naval officer persuaded Raza’s father to purchase an Apple II computer from him, which helped Raza learn programming and became the reason for his career. He received his bachelor’s degrees in Computer Engineering and Computer Science from Beacon House Informatics and West Virginia University. Thereafter he completed his MBA from Saint Leo University. In 2007, Raza joined AultCare Corporation (an integrated healthcare delivery system based in Canton, Ohio.) and serves there as a Vice President of Information Systems and EDI department. Raza is also a member of Philalethes Society, Scottish Rite and Freemasons of Ohio and was elected as a Worshipful Master for the year 2016 for William McKinley Lodge # 431.
