An upcoming feature-length Surrealist documentary composed of small, iridescent impressions of a tropical city and its secrets.
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!
An interview podcast in which librarians, archivists, and information science professionals talk about the coolest experiences of their careers, and how they got there.
Absurdist science fictional public education films, using a mixture of found and original footage.
I am the current moderator and main writer for this blog covering potential futures in Library and Information Science.
