Filmmaker / Graphic Designer / Hippie
For the last 20 years Derek has been mastering his craft in the arts of filmmaking and graphic design. In 2014 he entered the cannabis industry as co-founder of Tree-Rolls® and also produced Leafly's most viewed YouTube video to date (4M+ views). His last position of employment was a six year tenure at Wick & Mortar where he helped the branding agency make history by winning awards for multiple cannabis brands (as seen in Forbes) and the short documentary A Humboldt Story. In 2022 Derek was invited to be a judge on the jury panel for the Clio Cannabis Awards. Since then, he has moved into the mountains to connect with nature and help his girlfriend start a mobile photo booth business called Woody Booth.
