My name is Derek P. Collins and I’m a Product Designer at Netflix, where I’m part of the Growth Team.
I originally hail from a small, lakeside town in Ohio1, but I currently live in Cleveland, Ohio with my wife, son, and two old Chihuahuas. Besides Ohio, I’ve also lived in Arizona, California2, Tokyo3, and Mumbai4.
Outside of work, I enjoy traveling to far and distant places (I’ve been to 35 countries and counting), building Lego (something I just never grew out of), and Cleveland sports (I’m a lifelong fan of the Cleveland Browns).

I lived in San Francisco for nearly a decade before returning to Ohio. ↩︎
I lived in Tokyo for two months and it is one of my favorite cities in the entire world! I lived in the Akasaka district within Minato ward in Tokyo prefecture. ↩︎
I lived in Mumbai for two months, but I’ve visited several times. I specifically lived in Bandra West, which is considered the “posh” part of Mumbai. ↩︎
