Mike Dory

Adjunct, Alumni, Class of 2008


Courses Taught: Communications Lab

I am a creative technologist, educator, and tinkerer, currently working with Google in NYC. I was formerly the Managing Director at KBS | Spies & Assassins, an award-winning creative technology boutique, playing with platforms, applications, experiences and advertising across mobile, social, emerging platforms, the web, and at retail and physical locations. Prior to joining KBS, I co-founded the social technology agency Socialbomb (acquired by Refinery29 in 2013), and served as its CTO for four years. I hold a Masters of Interactive Telecommunications from NYU ITP, where I am also an adjunct professor, and am the co-author of the book Introduction to Tornado, published by O’Reilly Media. My personal and collaborative projects have appeared in the New York Times, National Public Radio, Gothamist, BoingBoing, Gizmodo, and MAKE Magazine.
