Coach. Music Lover. Quote King.
Hailing from the Steeler Nation, for Derek a solid work ethic was destined. Like his favorite team, he is no stranger to hard work, perseverance, and overcoming obstacles. For him, the black and gold are not merely colors but a lifestyle. He spent his teenage years in New Jersey before making the cross-country trek to Las Vegas. He soon discovered Las Vegas had far more to offer than the heat! And now, with 18 years in the wire and cable business, he is just getting started.
Not only is Derek a father of two boys, but he also coaches youth football and basketball. Being a coach comes with rewards. Derek’s oldest son is currently a Freshman QB for the United States Naval Academy. He believes coaching is a way to give back to those who may lack a positive influence. As a result, he has become a better communicator with an uncanny ability to find solutions even in the most difficult situations.

Never try to teach a pig how to dance; it wastes your time, and it annoys the pig!
