This 👇 is Derek D. He’s an actor, comedian and all around chill dude — and he was looking for some updated portraits for his website and casting calls, so we met up to create.
I’ve known Derek since 2007 when he started out as one of the main hosts for Fast Lane Daily at Next New Networks. We basically helped revolutionize what’s now known as the webseries, yeah, I’m sure you’ve heard of that. Derek managed to drive the the show through all of its iterations, for nearly 10 years. Unfortunately, I was only along for the ride during the first 3-4 years.
So we went off to explore, in a variety of outfits. Like this classy ensemble. Fancy a hipster wedding in Asbury Park? You betcha.
He’s no trouser schnauzer, but this dog’s got bite.
As always, like his pal Bob Shubin Jr., he likes to class up the joint.
Or just keep it cajzh, as they do in Jersey.
Derek is a truly funny guy, and one of the most genuine, friendly and kindest people I’ve ever met. He really is, and that may sound like a blowhard statement coming from someone like myself, but it’s true. He’s probably, ok literally, is one of the best. Ok fine, he’s the best.
If you’re looking for a character that fits his vibe, he’s always available for hire as an actor, voiceover artist, and even a graphic designer. Feel free to reach out to him for your next video.
Oh yeah, here’s that proof
