My name is Derek and I’m a student in the Criminology and Criminal Justice program at the University of Maryland, College Park at the Universities at Shady Grove (USG). There are many events and things on campus. I’m here to link you to all the action!

I have various hobbies. I love gaming. I have been a gamer since I was about six years old. Another hobby is taking scenic photos and trying to capture the essence of nature at that moment in time. My most prized hobby is expressive writing or poetry. To be able to paint a vivid picture of an object, person, experience, and feelings through words making them link together like a chain. My words create a type of pattern or flow that  makes whatever is being written easy on the ears and easy to digest. I’ve once performed one of my written poems at a poetry contest and the feeling of performing was amazing. The crowd was very receptive and pleasant. After the show some of the other people in the contest came up to me and told me they loved the analogies and metaphors I used in my piece. The feeling of that experience to this day is beyond amazing.

No matter what I am doing. I want to be able to bring people closer together. So follow me on my blogging adventure!
