Who is behind Dreamsocket?

I guess it is best to start with letting you know who I am. My name is Kenny Bunch. I am a programmer, dreamer and founder of Dreamsocket. Growing up, I created my own GI Joe vehicles out of scrap cardboard, started a snowboard clothing company at 15 years old, traveled the US with a skateboard and had a lot of fun just enjoying life. I never would have guessed that I would end up as a programmer. Yet, it has always been part of my story.

If you had come to me when I was an 8 years old playing on an Adam personal computer, I would have shown you some crazy BASIC games that I wrote with my older brother. In college, I would have tried to persuade you to test out the latest and greatest media applications I was programming in order to edit some skateboard videos. Come to me now and I’m essentially showing and saying the same thing. Fate has given me direction, and I’ve followed with a smile.

So yes, I have been extremely lucky to have been able to make a career out of something I love. Coming from a small town where factory jobs were the norm, my life is all a dream. The fact that I started out as a developer at some of the biggest companies in the world — CNN, Cartoon Network and Bell South– blows my mind. I cherished each of those opportunities. But, when a dream calls, you have to keep moving towards it. When the time came to start a company, I questioned if I was crazy, doubted what I was doing and was scared out of my mind when I left. My decision was always based on the fact that I had dreams that I wanted to accomplish, and I had to follow them.

Why am I telling you all of this? Quite simply, because that is the foundation of Dreamsocket . Even though we’ve legally been a software company for over three years, we don’t view what we have as a company. Everyone here views it as a destiny and a gateway to our dreams. I know those are strong words, but Dreamsocket really is a place built from the heart. We have great respect for those around us and treat every opportunity as a gift. We want to do great things in our work and in our actions.

Dreamsocket’s philanthropic pledge

Dreamsocket was founded with the aid and support of a great number of generous individuals. We have been fortunate enough to have a community that has allowed us to thrive and become who we were meant to be. We want to provide the same opportunities to others and genuinely make the world a better place. We view our employees, vendors and customers as partners in our dreams. Therefore, we want to offer them the opportunity to participate in our vision of a better future for all humankind. Through our philanthropic program, for every service contract we enter, we will make a donation to a nonprofit charity of our partner’s choosing that they feel will make a positive impact in the lives of others.
