My name is Erik Dasque, I was born in Paris, raised in the south of France and have lived in Boston since 2000.
I began my career doing in Product Management (SilverStream, Novell) and have switched to Engineering Management since 2005 (BzzAgent, Vivaki, Hungry Fish Media/Nutraclick). My teams and I have built enterprise software, development tools and large B2C web sites. I very much enjoy experimenting with and implementing new technologies.
When I am not working, I enjoy technical scuba diving, photography, DIY electronics and various computer related projects.
