Derek J. Brown works as a production associate for Rocky Mountain PBS in Denver. He was part of the team that created “Urban Rez,” a nationally distributed documentary about the legacy and modern effects of American Indians relocating to urban areas that won a 2013 Emmy Award in the Heartland Chapter regional competition. His other accomplishments include earning the President’s Scholarship at The Art Institute of Colorado and a nomination for the 2009 Heartland Chapter Emmy Awards.

He’s proud of his Navajo heritage and enjoys using his career as a vehicle to tell stories about his tribe’s history. Derek also served his country, earning the rank of Sergeant in the United State Marine Corps and serving as a Marine artillery for seven years.

Derek, who in 2011 earned a Bachelor of Arts in Digital Filmmaking & Video Production from The Art Institute of Colorado, says his education taught him the importance of being original. He encourages current students to stay focused and to learn from the advice, criticism, and encouragement of fellow students and instructors.
