Hello. I'm Derek.
I am a seasoned and creative software engineer animated by the challenge of crafting smart, deep, and creatively inspiring products.
I received my engineering training at the University of Oxford, where I studied as a Rhodes Scholar, and the MIT Media Laboratory; I also hold a Ph.D. in cognitive developmental psychology from Yale University. I currently lead game development at Motion Math, an award-winning educational games studio in San Francisco, CA.
My full professional résumé can be found here.
I'm always eager to meet other developers, designers, and studios working in my Bay Area neighborhood, so please don't be shy about saying hello!
