After drifting in and out of the digital marketing waters for over 15 years, and everywhere in between, Derek graduated with a bachelor's degree in Business Administration Marketing and was scooped up by the Coalmarch by WorkWave family as an SEO Team Lead in 2022.
As a former US Marine and solopreneur, Derek can be found around the office channeling his outside-the-box marketing style and an “adapt and overcome” attitude to help himself and the SEO team solve difficult problems in new and hopefully exciting ways. As a new SEO Team Lead, Derek hopes to build strong relationships and promises to strive to improve every day!
“Helping clients push through plateaus is my expertise, but coffee, no, helping people, is my true passion."
Outside the office when he’s not traveling to tropical beaches in the Philippines with his wife and daughter, Derek enjoys long walks in pest-free environments and drinking ice-cold smoothies, sometimes at the same time.
