About Dory

The short version:

Software engineer. Entrepreneur. Animal lover. Geek. Start up veteran. Snowboarder. Movie buff. World traveler.

The long version:

I am first and foremost a software developer, and a geek. I started with computers when i was 8 writing logo, then pascal and never stopped learning new technologies and languages.

I love animals and I tend to always visit a zoo when I visit new cities. I just love animals and I’ve had dogs, cats, hamsters, fish, you name it. I also try to sneak in as many days of snowboarding as I can, so when I’m not working 14 hour days I’m probably taking my weekend off in the snow.

Over the years I’ve been fascinated with entrepreneurship and I’ve had various companies and projects. Some went well, others not so great. My work has enabled me to live in 4 continents and meet the smartest and best engineers in the world. From working in large R&D shops like Microsoft to small and crazy startups. From selling millions of dollars of technology to banks to selling pilots of young products to partners, to creating great development team, raising millions in funding, experiencing through rush and hardships of m&a negotiations to building amazing products with incredible people.

As a kid I’ve been asked what I want to do when I grow up. I said I want to do something smart with technology and work all over the world. So thank you to all the amazing people that have enabled me to do so and live my dream! I hope to continue building and selling technology for many years.


My Approach

I try to take a very practical approach to software and products. We must rememeber that technology is an enabler, not an end goal. I'm easy to work with (or so I've been told) and I can manage with technical or non-technical people, as I try to focus on results. My primary objective is whenever I work with someone, that they get, at any point, something that has value for them. That's why I work an interative / agile manner. I think that it's much better to get something shipped and iterate it to perfection.
