Derek Kedziora with a friendly smile
Hi there, I’m Derek

🇳🇱 I currently call Amsterdam, the Netherlands home.

🇺🇸🇺🇦 Born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona, USA, but left when I was 21. I’ve spent most of my time since then in Kyiv, Ukraine, with a few years in Asia along the way.

🇺🇳 Language nerd: my original career was teaching English, and language learning is one of the great joys in life.

🪷 I’ve always been fascinated by religion and spirituality. I’ve been practicing Buddhism and meditation for over a decade.

📚 Sci-fi and fantasy geek, from the old classics like Tolkien and Asimov to the latest Star Wars stuff. There’s something special in getting lost in great world building.

💻 I’m a hobby programmer, make too automations and keyboard shortcuts.

🧠 I take and organize way too many notes into a Zettelkasten mass of files.

🏢 My day job is content design. Head to my portfolio for more about that.

Like the layout of my site? I built this site myself, and you get the template on GitHub.

I’m always happy to get an email.
