He is a bonafide whitewater junkie that’s logged thousands of miles on various rivers throughout the country ranging from the upper Klamath in Oregon to the Chattooga in South Carolina. When Derick isn’t working, he can be found arm knitting blankets (which he sells at local markets and shops that he comes across during his travels, we told him he needs an Etsy shop).
