So you want to learn
more about me, sure...
you pervert :)
My name is Derek Siu and my dad abandoned me when I was 2 years old, oh too much information sorry…
Rewind The Tape.
Let's Start Again.
During my childhood I was very addicted to computer games specifically League of Legends. To combat this addiction I decided to take up a sport, so I picked up tennis at the age of 15 and I've been playing ever since! Match anyone?
In 2014 I created and independently ran my own YouTube channel “Kered” which contains over 50+ flash animations based on my life experiences at the time. This channel really enabled me to express myself at the time and was the beginning of me jumping into the field of graphic design.
I have always wanted to start a podcast as I am very curious as what people think, why they think like that and how that shapes their behaviour. In 2020 with the help of a former colleague we created and independently ran a podcast series talking about relatable life topics featuring guests from all walks of life. As of November 2020 due to time constraints this project has been put on hold.
Although I secretly low key hate going to the gym, there is no better feeling than dragging yourself through a workout. The gym not only keeps me fit, but it also allows me to process my thoughts and ideas.
In 2019 during my final semester of University, I had the unique opportunity to go on a student exchange to Toronto Canada to study Film Production. Going to a country you have never been before and not knowing anyone, was quite the character building.
