My name's Derek. I'm a Usability Researcher for an open-source scientific data repository. I'm also a filmmaker concerned with documentaries and mockumentaries. I recently released my first feature-length documentary, Sarasota Half in Dream. In the past, I have worked in academic and public libraries, cognitive science research, film production, and elementary education. Particular interests of mine include UX, 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!


Sarasota Half in Dream

A feature-length Surrealist documentary - iridescent impressions of a tropical city and its secrets.
