He spent the next years of his life in Hawaii, San Diego and India before settling in the much more exciting, colorful and exceedingly polite land of Canada. At the age of 24, Lorien moved his brother Matt's burgeoning internet company from their parent’s basement and over the next four years managed the growth of Interlog, one of Canada’s first commercial ISP’s. Lorien and Matt teamed up again and co-founded Bird on a Wire Networks, a managed web hosting and data-center provider, which was one of the first of its kind in Canada. Within two years, the company was acquired by AT&T Canada. Their third start-up,, based in New York City, was acquired by 1800-Flowers. Lorien has also been known to run divisions of Fortune 500 companies, spearhead the exponential US growth of a UK based tech company as Global VP Business Development and serve on the advisory board of a number of start-ups.
