A feature-length Surrealist documentary - iridescent impressions of a subtropical city and its secrets.
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, 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!
An interview podcast in which librarians, archivists, and information science professionals talk about the coolest experiences of their careers, and how they got there.
An IMLS grant funded report featuring several case studies of successful artist-in-residence programs at cultural heritage institutions.
From 2014-2016 I was the main writer and editor of this blog covering potential futures in Library and Information Science.
