He was marketing manager for two software companies, GT Software, and Enkia Corporation, responsible for marketing research, advertising, and campaign management. He transitioned one from a sales driven organization to a marketing driven organization, to focus on overall market need and opportunities. As a marketing manager, he interfaced with major corporations such as IBM and Equifax Credit Card Services.

In 1992 he wrote How To Write A Screenplay, (available now only online) whose material publication was partially funded by AFI, through a Willard Rodgers' request. (AFI does not publish or endorse.) It has been used by many in the public schools as a non-curriculum addition.

Writers Workshop was a screenplay development environment, supported by all of the major studios and many Hollywood principal actors, directors, and agents. Dorian was one of the top developers. The goal was to help the writer develop the story to its marketing potential through feedback and staged readings.

Author of Writers Workshop Script Doctor, (no longer in print), he researched hundreds of screenplay critiques, and compared them to top producer and director feedback.
