Actor, Writer, Director - I love being on both sides of the camera. I'm always working on projects of my own making or other's. I've taken On Camera classes where I've learned physicality and making your self tape as good as it can be. I've also been trained in Meisner and Viewpoints as well as classes in movement, improv and accessing your emotions. I can help with script analysis, memorizing lines, deciding what physicality should be acted out and self-taping help. I'm happy to take and give directions to improve your audition. Sometimes another eye is all that is needed to help make compelling characters and choices. I want you to be your best! Let's get you the best self-tape and book that audition!

If I'm not online you can email me to book a session at:

Derek got his start performing as a Drag King in Houston, Texas in 2018. He began seeking acting roles on the big screen as a way to stay active during the pandemic in December of 2020. A year later he moved to Atlanta to continue perusing his dream of being an actor. He quickly found his footing in comedy, which surprised him because of his autistic background. He continues performing while living out as a proud queer and disabled (invisible) actor of Native American descent (Cherokee Native) and speaks out for his queer and disabled brothers and sisters.
