As a kid growing up in Des Moines, Derek Simpson shamelessly rocked a bowl cut. Now, and since graduating in 2017, Derek finds inspiration in meeting new people and helping them feel their best: “I want to provide a memorable service to make people feel good about themselves, which, in turn, provides satisfaction for me.” In his free time, Derek plays bass guitar in doom metal band Bloodspell, skateboards and spends time with his wife and sons.
