DERIVE is the word that I use to describe my subjective experiences of wandering the world.
It is nothing more than my explorations of places, both new and old.

There is a certain feeling that warms my heart, that feeling of your first night in an unfamiliar place, that sensation that anything is possible and that all it takes is for you to go out into the night and wander.

Through my images and words I am driven to share that feeling with you, perhaps the view from the top of a building or from the top of a mountain, the feeling of being lost in the city of light.

You could say it all started in Tokyo where I lived for 5 years, or maybe it was Shanghai where I visited for 5 days. But ultimately DERIVE is about exploring the world and sharing the journey.


DERIVE manifests itself in many forms:
Wanderer Magazine
Wander the Night
Danchi Dreams

Help us explore the world.
The keyword for DERIVE is journey. In 2019 we spent six months on the road photographing and exploring the world by night. In 2020 we want to dedicate a whole lot more time to writing, wandering, photobooks, and of course Wanderer magazine. This goal is what where we need to be for that to happen.
