Derrick started working with I-70 in March 2017. He is an ASE Master Certified Technician. Derrick started working on cars before he ever knew that was what he wanted to do for a career. By the time he was 18 Derrick had already been working in a shop for more than a year and decided it was what he wanted to do. At that point Derrick decided to go to school to actually learn about cars. In 2001 he graduated from Universal Technical Institute with an associate's degree in automotive, diesel, and industrial technologies and has been growing his knowledge ever since. In 2009 Derrick got married and in 2010 he had his first of two boys and loves every minute he gets to spend with them and his wife.

Essentially cars are an everyday part of my Derricks life.
