Derek writes interfaces, designs content and enjoys making digital experiences for browsers of all shapes and sizes. Over the past ten years he’s designed award-winning mobile apps and created custom websites for startups across the country. He was recently the Senior Designer at RoundPegg, a TechStars company that's changing the way businesses manage their culture and track employee engagement.

A Colorado native, Derek loves living in the Mile High with his wife, daughter and son. When he's not crushing pixels or playing with his kids, Derek can be found racing the Vet class at Thunder Valley. It's also worth noting he's a fan of mighty ales, incapable of growing a mustache, and Derek feels like a total asshole when he writes in the third person.
