Hello, I'm Derek and thank you for stopping by. I'm here to help.

I am available to talk to your audience about the psychology of money, including improving financial health, living intentionally, financial mindfulness, money and happiness, money in relationships, and more. I combine story-telling and simple drawings to engage your audience and help them retain the message so they can make smart decisions with their money.

My mission is to simplify money matters so it doesn't have to be a top source of stress.
