Derek is still the amazed little boy who picked up his first deck of cards at age 8. Inspired by the true story his mother told him that he was electrocuted before he was born he wondered in that moment if he had super powers. He also realized that life was a precious gift and decided to make the most out of every last single moment of it.

Experience: Derek started speaking at the tender age of fifteen to audiences in the hundreds and then thousands. He has spoken in over ten countries all over the world. It wasn’t until he was finishing his college education that Derek was discovered by a Las Vegas headliner and his craft of magic, illusions and mind reading, grew into a professional art form from there. Derek has been the choice of corporate audiences for more than ten years on five continents. He has entertained millions all over the world on six major TV networks including the Discovery network, Fox News in New York City, CTV and Global.

Performance Style: Derek’s diverse skills enable him to stage large scale illusions as well as interact on a more personal level with the audience by using his rare and entertaining ability to read minds. As Derek says, “My show is a series of performance pictures designed to conjure up memories and thoughts from the audience. This form of entertainment seeks to enlighten us through art and entertainment. Indeed, it is through a deep sense of play that we learn more about our community and ourselves.”
