Derek has devoted his career to perfecting his craft as senior production specialist. He brings over 25 years of experience to his role, and is relied upon by designers and clients alike for his diligence, perfectionist tendencies and ability to create handcrafted comps that look as though they’ve come fresh from the printer. Derek works with a wide variety of clients, from Boeing to The Coca-Cola Company, Kraft Foods, Accenture and Gap, to name just a few. He’s an exceptional team player with an unfailingly positive outlook on life.
His preference is large projects with lots of moving parts, and he loves working closely with designers and clients to make the files and the outcome perfect. At home and at work, Derek is a kind of Renaissance man—an expert chef and grill master, one heck of a bartender and an amazing gardener. His lunches are always a work of art and the envy of the entire lunch table. He’s a devoted hiker, spending much of the year’s weekends on the trails. Derek is inspired by nature and lives life to the fullest, and as such is an inspiration to those of us who get to work by his side.
