My name is Derick — I am a product designer based in Long Beach, California.


Design is a lot like telling a story, and the best stories are usually the ones where we connect with characters the most: through their experiences, emotions, and morals. Great design comes from developing empathy for the user’s needs through character understanding and development.

I am a creative,  a concertgoer, and a hobby musician from South San Diego. When not designing, or learning new software, I like to absorb new experiences from exploring new cities, cultures, and foods. Indoors, I’ll most likely be enjoying a story from games such as Legend of Zelda, or TV shows such as One Piece.

I’m happy that you took the time to view my site, and I’m looking forward to getting in contact with you.
