A versatile American actor and voice artist, Derek brings a professionalism and positive energy to set. He debuted as a co-star in Showtime Networks "Homeland" series before later being privately coached by a 37-year industry professional. He wasted little time putting his training to use booking a lead role in his very next appearance with Sundance and César-winning, Oscar nominated director Sofia Alaoui. He more recently had a co-star role in Showtime's "Ghosts of Beirut" and a recurring role in a yet unreleased Netflix series, and he is featured in a global commercial for the new Land Rover Defender 130 alongside brand ambassador and record-setting British rock climber Kenton Cool. Derek continues to learn new skills and develop his craft in anticipation of new opportunities.
As a native English speaker and avid linguist speaking advanced French, Spanish, and Arabic and multi-sport athlete having played basketball professionally, Derek understands and possesses the discipline and determination necessary in challenging the boundaries of what is believed possible in his relentless pursuit of excellence. That commitment, coupled with his desire to serve others, has led him around the globe and ultimately to Casablanca, Morocco where he currently resides seeking to use his talents and skills to have a positive impact on his community, sometimes simply by sharing one of his numerous culinary creations.
