Age: 30

Residence: South Side Slopes

Family: Wife, Anne, daughter, Elizabeth

Education: Bachelor of Science in business administration from Duquesne University, 2004

Background: After graduating from Duquesne, Doring worked for four years in information technology for Alcoa before a friend persuaded him to join a software company that, through a series of acquisitions, eventually became part of the San Francisco-based Autonomy software firm. There, he became interested in legal matters and eventually enrolled in the four-year evening law school program at Duquesne.

Notable: An article Doring wrote for Duquesne's Business Law journal, “Not Much to ‘Like' About the Facebook IPO,” placed second in the 2012 James E. Beckley Student Writing Competition. In it, Doring examined the legal problems with the Initial Public Offering for Facebook stock and how those problems could be avoided in the future.

Quote: “This topic was sort of a nice blend of my background and interests in business and technology law. … Getting a writing award like this is something that can really boost your standing in the community.”
