Derek works as a high school Drama teacher, father, writer, actor, and occasionally funny
comedian. As an actor/comedian, he has been found at ComedySportz, The Big Stinkin’ Improv Festival,

he even has a few copies of his comedy album left. As a
writer, his rantings have been published on ActionAce, Daily
Radar, Fanboy Planet, Once Upon A Dime, and The
Wave, while a series of short one-act plays of his had
a successful run at City Lights in December 2002. Thanks to Fanboy Planet, he has fulfilled many of his childhood dreams, including becoming a presenter on BBC-Radio.
Derek wrote two issues of Tony Loco with Mark Teague for Illusive Arts Entertainment, edited Sparks for Catastrophic Comics (now a major motion picture!), wrote The Greatest American Hero with William Katt and Chris Folino for Catastrophic/Arcana, and contributes stories to Bela Lugosi's Tales from the Grave from Monsterverse Comics. He has certification from UCLA's professional screenwriting program, and hopes that's not the end of the story.
