About

Hey, I’m Derek — a designer exploring the foundation and boundries of human-machine experiential interaction. I focus on designing for accessibility and inclusivity.

I’m also interested in what pure story-telling looks like through still and motion photography, as well as musical composition.

When I’m not desiging, I’m likely traveling with my wife, finding good food or enjoying silence in nature. Oh and being a doggy dad to our rescue pug, Peggy.
