In his spare time Derek enjoys traveling, being an activist for gay issues, and doing photoshoots just for fun and creative purposes. His hobbies and interests include going to the movies, going out with friends, exploring the city, and trying new restaurants. Derek’s favorite quote is, “stand for something, or else you’ll fall for anything.” and he tries to live by this every day.
Derek is working on a few exciting projects and is currently seeking new modeling and acting opportunities in Los Angeles and New York City.
