This isn’t so much a bio as it is a reintroduction to Derek because everyone on campus already knows who he is. Derek absolutely kills it in the tenor section because he’s so meticulous about his work. Whether it’s practicing riffs for hours or making friends who love to watch him try on eight different plain white t-shirts so he can find the perfect one, Derek makes sure he is always on point so we, the peasants of OTB, can eagerly take notes and learn how to be like him. Having trouble finding our newest tenor? Just search for the largest camera in your vicinity and look in front of it. He’s no newb to the stage, and we’re glad he gets to show off his rocky flare out of his Glee Club blue and red tie. Brendon Urie is already proud.
