Derek lives in Prague. He also once taught English in Galicia, Spain. He writes because he can’t, and shouldn’t, dance to explain things. He graduated from UMass Amherst as a Journalism major, which was the primary reason for this blog’s creation, and holds an advanced degree from Harvard University… from a one-day bartending course. He is an avid videogamer, movie fanatic, and a reader of anything from horror, to satire, to the news that you just -know- is just too depressing for its own good.
He enjoys writing, as far as anyone can tell, and is currently living outside he United States for work and personal preference. He has had several blog entries published through the UMass Collegian’s website from his trip through Europe during the summer of 2011.
