Extremely Motivated Team Player

“I first met Derick when he interviewed at TechSmith. I was immediately convinced that we needed to hire Derick. Right then. Right there. Frankly I didn’t care for what job, because Derick is an impact player and just getting him in your company is a win.

When we did ultimately hire Derick, he ended up on my team – I was thrilled. From the get go Derick proved to be a team player, extremely motivated and he has that rare combination of design chops, developer know-how plus the ability to communicate with all ranges of personalities. Having worked in the design and technology field for over a decade, I can say Derick is a rarity.

Over the next couple of months we dove into projects together and while I would like to believe that I was fulfilling my role as the “senior” guy on the team that taught and led, I found that everyday Derick was teaching me something new and leading in ways that helped our team come up with better results than we would have had he played the role of the new guy that just keeps his mouth shut.

My only disappointment is that while I have moved on to another company, Derick has stayed on in his roll at TechSmith. I keep hearing from past coworkers how awesome Derick is doing. I am proud of the guy and hope that our paths cross professionally again.

Motivational and Upbeat

For a little over 3 years Derick and I were part of the Title Source web team. I was very green when it came to how websites were designed before starting to work with the team. Derick was always there to explain how the site works as well as how things we change affect usability and SEO. He is an extremely hard worker, always willing to go the extra mile to get a project done. He is also an amazing motivator and his up beat attitude always makes the hardest projects seem less daunting. I will always expect Derick to produce great work that is very user friendly and well laid out.

Passionate About Good Work

Derick is passionate about good work, equally on both the design and code side. He won’t say something is well done until he looks at the code for it. I very much enjoyed working with Derick, he is a rare breed of technical skill and sense of design.

Positive Attitude

Derick was a huge part of our team. He brought a warm smile and positive attitude to work every day. There aren’t too many people that are both a gifted graphic designer and a top notch programmer which makes Derick stand out from the crowd. His focus is on usability and he rightfully believes that the end user should be at the center of all design decisions. Great person and great developer to work with!

Passion is Infectious

Derick is a talented, skillful graphic designer and software developer who is also personable and a lot of fun to work with. His strong focus on usability and his ability to speak and translate between the sometimes very different languages of the business folks, the creative types and the technical geeks truly make him stand out among his peers. He is passionate about what he does and that passion is infectious.

Highly Motivated

I worked with Derick on a couple of revisions for the front end website and Derick was a dream to work with. Derick’s attention to detail always matches his commitment to excellent programming at the highest levels. Derick strives to create positive user experiences and works to resolve even the slightest corrections. Derick is highly motivated and works very well leading others to follow his high standards.

Dedicated and Resourceful

Derick is a huge asset to any project that he is given. He is a dedicated and resourceful developer with a keen eye for detail. Derick is one of those team members who when given a task, there is no question that it is going to be handled. One of Derick’s strongest assets is his ability to work with anyone and stay focused on the task at hand. From a development perspective, Derick has a rare combination of artistic (front-end) and analytical(back-end) development skills. He is an all around great guy and someone I would hire in an instant given the opportunity.
