My name's Derek. I currently work as a UX Researcher for an open-source scientific data repository. I'm also a documentary filmmaker. I recently released my first feature film, Sarasota Half in Dream. In the past, I have worked in academic and public libraries, archives, cognitive science research, film production, and elementary education. Particular interests of mine include UX, research data management, A/V and software preservation, cultural heritage, Surrealism and Situationism, Copyright alternatives, psycholinguistics, and film history. See below for some of the stuff I've done on the internet!
