profile picture

I'm Gautam Dey; a developer, entrepreneur, husband, computer language geek, and parti poodle owner working San Diego, California. I work at Anonymizer managing the consumer division.

I develop and design functional, usability oriented code. I use the best features of whatever language suits the task best, be it Perl, Ruby, C/C++, or Objective-C. The most interesting thing I've created was a system that builds custom live Linux CD's.

I've starting a small business in my spare time, Appzorz. You'll find me writing business plans, manging road maps, negotiating deals and pitching to investors.
