Most Creative People 2018

Founder, House of Highlights, Bleacher Report | New York

For redefining sports highlights
The Most Creative People in business 2018

Raja is a 23-year-old Instagram magician. When he was a college student in Florida, he began playing with the platform by posting sports clips and user-generated content to an account he called House of Highlights. It took off. In mere months it gained hundreds of thousands of followers. This caught Bleacher Report's eye, which scooped up Raja in 2016, essentially hiring him to do what he was before doing in his spare time.

Now, two years later and with 8-plus million followers, Raja continues manning House of Highlights while helping Bleacher Report increase its reach to younger audiences. This year the account is on a hiring spree, looking for people who can post content in the spirit of the account (read: Raja). And this twentysomething is leading this charge.
