After graduating with a Bachelor in Religious Studies from Briercrest College, Derek completed a degree in philosophy at the University of Waterloo. Midway through grad school, Derek married his wife and took a post teaching music theory and recording arts. In lieu of returning to graduate studies in philosophy, Derek entered the University of Western Ontario’s law program and was awarded a Juris Doctor in the spring of 2009.  As a musician who has worked with many different record labels in the last ten years, Derek is interested in copyright law. Likewise, because of his background in political philosophy, Derek is also interested in constitutional law, administrative law, and philosophy of law.  In July of 2009, Derek relocated to Calgary and joined the Canadian Constitution Foundation as an articling student.
