Help homeowners determine the best solution to their home’s issues, while exploring the root cause and best preventative maintenance.


Derek is an Ohio native.  An only child, he grew up on his family’s 1200 acre farm.  He attended the University of Toledo for two years, before transferring to Defiance College.  

After graduation, he spent some time working in wireless communication, honing his people skills and resolving problems for his customers.  It’s this interest in helping people that brought him to Acculevel; educating homeowners is his favorite part of the job.


  • Derek enjoys watching – and playing- a wide variety of sports.  He’s an avid golfer, and coaches girls softball.
  • He is also a licensed and trained weather spotter who volunteers for the National Weather Service.
