While pursuing a Masters degree in VR at Stanford University, Derek founded Strivr as a tool to train football players.

Derek leads the vision and strategy behind Strivr’s mission to elevate performance through immersive experience. He works closely with the executive sponsors at Strivr's customer and partner accounts to provide expertise, guidance, and insight into how VR can help them achieve their biggest business objectives.

He loves golf almost as much as he loves being a dad to his three boys.
