Hi. I'm


My goal is to learn all about the universe, and make it an amazing place to live. I enjoy solving puzzles, playing piano, going on hikes, and binging Wikipedia.

I'm always down to meet new people and go on adventures, so if you want to say hi please email me(but don't spam me)@derikk.com!
