Derrick's Locus
Derrick Usher

I make a living working on what I enjoy - working on technically challenging endeavors. My current medium is software - I write and review software. I have had the pleasure of working in a variety of industries.

As for my educational background, I am an alumnus of UC San Diego. My major was Computer Engineering through the Electrical Engineering department. I also earned a minor in History. The residential college that I was associated with during my studies at UC San Diego was Roosevelt College.

As much as I enjoy working on technology, I do have a life outside of that. I enjoy watching and playing sports. Traveling is another passion of mine. Hiking and exploring the wilderness are other activies that I enjoy. I enjoy culture in a variety of forms (e.g. museums, performing arts, etc.). Going for a bike ride is a great way to spend a day in my mind.

I enjoy keeping myself busy and using my knowledge to make my life easier. Some of these projects may get a write up under the "projects" secton (link: projects), so be sure to take a look at that section.
