Derek’s passion for agriculture and farming runs deep, as he has been around it his entire life having grown up on his family’s farm in Nebraska. He brings to EarthOptics a wealth of experience working on farms throughout junior high and high school, eventually progressing to a role as a farm manager. Just before joining EarthOptics, Derek spent time working in heavy construction and is excited to return to doing what he loves - working in agriculture.
Coming from Nebraska, Derek’s hobbies include hunting, shooting, hiking, and anything outdoors. You can also find Derek cheering on the Nebraska Cornhusker football team every season. With a love for agriculture and a passion for learning new technology, Derek fits right in as a member of the EarthOptics Field Team.
