A Graduate of Southern Illinois University at Carbondale with a BA in Radio/Television and a double-minor in Theatre and Spanish, Derek spent 23 years in radio as an on-air talent and Production Director. It was the creative process in writing, performance and production and his love for acting that evolved into a passion for voice-over work. He now works as a freelance, full-time voice talent out of his home studio in Oregon. When he’s not in the voice booth, you might find him traveling, fly fishing, mountain-biking or cross-country skiing.  Depending upon the weather.
