Derek was born in Salt Lake City and grew up loving all things “outdoors.” His dad taught him to hunt, fish, camp, garden, and sail at a pretty early age - and they turned out to be passions that would never leave him.
Now, some 30 years into this journey, he’s happily married to his childhood crush, he’s a proud father of 5, and is deeply committed to his faith in Jesus.
He is the founder of Earl Outdoors and Co-Host of the “Hear Ye Kings” christian podcast.
