I've been crafting work both on and off the internet for a little over a decade. Along the way, I've worked with a bunch of really rad clients on a ton of killer projects and picked up some great skills. I'm interested in helping missions with a focus on journalism, our environment, and the arts.

Derek was a total pleasure to work with. He always gave me a ton of creative options to work with and I'm so happy with the final design we came up with.

Derek is not only a really talented designer and developer, he also excels at explaining high-level development processes and problems in a way that makes sense to the layperson -- a trait not common enough in the website development world. ADX could not be happier with the work that Derek has done for us both for the front-end UX of our site and on the administrative side. We would highly recommend his services!
Matt Preston, Communications Director, ADX
