Nice to meet you
Hey, I'm Derek
I'm a marketing coach and growth advisor for SMBs and startups.
My career has taken me to some awesome leadership positions at award-winning digital marketing and media agencies - all thanks to my knack for fuelling brand growth and delivering solid ROI from my client's marketing investments. I've planned and managed successful multi-million-dollar marketing campaigns for national and international clients, and most recently was leading growth and go-to-market strategies in-house for Series A tech startups.
I’m obsessed with data but also understand that creativity is a key part of the magic. This mix of right and left brain thinking allows me to use data to inform the audience, creative development, and shape the media mix to maximize impact across the customer journey.
But most importantly, I'm passionate about elevating the people around me and supporting businesses on their path to growth and continued success.Let's Connect

I gratefully acknowledge the land on which I live, work, and play is the traditional, ancestral and unceded territory of the Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), Lil̓wat7úl (Lil’wat), Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh), and xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations. I am grateful to occupy this land in mutual respect and appreciation. I strive to be an ally, humbly educating myself, learning as much as I can from my indigenous friends and business partners, moving forward to a respectful and prosperous future.
