About Me

Derek on the run
And frame 352 reveals…the ever-elusive Derek in mid stride!

Step aside Groot. I am Derek!

I write because sometimes I have thoughts and feel the need to share them. I try to ground the things I say in fact, but I accept that most of my writing will appear as the irreverent ramblings of a madman. (I’m entirely bonkers. But I’ll tell you a secret. All the best people are.)

I studied agriculture in school and previously worked in biotech (with fish). The Count of Monte Cristo is my favorite book but I haven’t actually read the whole thing (yet). I like comic books but not superheroes. I think Avatar (James Cameron) is overrated but Avatar: The Last Airbender is the best animated series ever. I’m not an art lover but I like works by Dionisio Baixeras y Verdaguer. In SATC parlance, I’m a Miranda. I love science fiction but not much fantasy.

Star Trek TOS > Battlestar Galactica > TNG > Star Wars

Boxers > briefs but boxers vs boxer briefs is a push.

You now know me better than some of my friends, but if you still have a burning question, contact me!
