My name's Derek. I'm a Master's student at Simmons College's School of Library and Information Science and I'm currently working as their Fellow for Dean's Initiatives. In the past, I have worked in academic and public libraries, cognitive science research, film production, and elementary education. Particular interests of mine include user experience research, A/V and software preservation, cultural heritage, Surrealism and Situationism, Copyright alternatives, psycholinguistics, and documentary filmmaking. I am currently in the post-production phase of my first feature-length documentary, Sarasota Half in Dream. See below for some of the stuff I've done on the internet!


Sarasota Half in Dream

An upcoming feature-length Surrealist documentary composed of small, iridescent impressions of a tropical city and its secrets.
