Derrel’s nature is to interact with anyone, anywhere, at any time—and doing so over an activity or a delicious meal makes the experience so much more special. Derrel has been fortunate to work with premiere guiding companies, leading up to his career in active adventure travel.

Derrel grew up in Los Angeles, was educated in San Francisco, and became who he is while exploring the oceans and six continents on this earth. After participating in basketball his whole life, cycling became Derrel’s way to push himself individually. Combined with a desire to share his experiences in the places he’s enjoyed exploring, he comes to DuVine and shares the table with people, stories, and passions from all walks of life—all of which he samples with curiosity and shares with an open mind.
