Derek’s Bio

Your major: Digital Media and Journalism

Your hometown: Salt Lake City

Where do you live now? Salt Lake City

What are you passionate about? I am super passionate about snowboarding and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. I also spend way too much time watching Netflix.

What is your favorite class (or classes) at SLCC? I graduated with my AS in General Studies last semester and felt like that was high school 2.0. After switching majors to communications, I have loved every one of my classes. I also really enjoyed Intro to drawing, that was a way fun class.

Which actor/actress would play you in your life movie? That???s a hard question. I have a huge man crush on Tom Hardy and think he would do a decent job.

Where do you see yourself in five years? I see myself graduated from the U and running a successful podcast.

If you could have a superpower, what would it be? Teleportation, Nightcrawler has been my favorite X-Men character since I was a kid. I also hate flying so teleportation take the whole aspect of flying right out of the picture.

Something about you that other people would be surprised to know: I used to be an MMA fighter. I never made it past the regional circuits and after a couple failed attempts at getting on ???The Ultimate Fighter??? realilty TV show,I decided to hang up the gloves. I still train BJJ, but don???t think I???ll ever fight in again. Who knows?
