Derek Anthony Brown was born on August 31st, 1992 in Portland, Maine. As a young boy he first ventured into film with his younger brother, making stop motion pictures with his father's old camcorder. Since, he has developed a passion for the film industry and most importantly; music. Derek's aspiration and ambition brought him to Berklee College of Music, where he received a degree in Orchestrating and Producing Music for Film and Video Games.
After graduating, Derek began working with Twin Lens Media and Brian Tortora. Scoring such short films as Steven Branfman - Raku Master(2013) and Bentley Hockey - Frozen Fenway(2014) only to name a few. These projects soon led him to working with Boston College's own Steven Panico and his team on Hyundai's Lens of Loyalty film competition, the video has seen nationwide exposure and finished second overall. Derek is a multi-instrumentalist playing; guitar, piano, french horn, cello and percussion. His creative and intuitive drive leads to experimentation in creating new sounds and effects, creating a distinct sound all his own.
