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 highest viewed 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's moved out of the city to connect with nature and start building on his property in the mountains.
Derek is currently an independent contractor in Lake Chelan (WA) and open for business.
