About Me

the website
Welcome to AjayArora.com. This site has gone through a few major updates since it originally launched back in 2001. Back then, I had little idea how popular the name "Ajay Arora" really is. A recent query on LinkedIn shows over 250 unique profiles. Fortunately, while popular, it's a far cry from the 15k+ "John Smith" profiles! With every update, I've tried to make the site cleaner than before. I'm down to just 5 tabs and only 3 colors (is a monochrome version next?).

work

If you have an iPhone, iPod, or Android device, try out our app and let me know what you think.
