Armed with endless energy and probable undiagnosed ADHD, Derrick has had a crack at most things. From exploring a career as an aerobics instructor whilst in medical school (a failed attempt) to organising hip hop parties, promoting artists as a music manager, motivating and educating as a professional speaker, hosting as a Radio DJ / TV Host to most recently founding Superfly Monkey Dragons – a parkour academy and agency sharing his love of movement.
It may all seem random, but there is a common thread through most of his endeavours – an inner desire to explore human potential through mind and movement and a passion to empower, entertain and move people.
One of his earliest dreams was to host a broadcast TV talk show. That dream had taken a back seat for some time, but now the stars have finally re-aligned and he’s rediscovered his passion to connect, communicate and empower. Its time to reignite and get Lit!
