Derrick Mathers Character Profile

Character Pircture of Derrick Mathers

Hey, I'm Derrick Mathers! Armed with a Bachelor's in finance, I'm on the road to becoming a financial analyst. But, I wasn't always so excited about learning.


Let's just say I was an expert at skipping school. Back in the day, I was the popular kid, and trust me, nothing embarrasses me—not even close calls. My partner in crime? None other than the tech whiz, Joe Malone.


Now, my goal is success and a family, but don't let my resourceful exterior fool you; I've got a secret soft spot. Catch me laughing at messy accidents and indulging in video games. Despite my competitive streak, I value being seen as a good person. With a love for chimichangas, coffee, and the occasional gin and tonic, I'm a sight-oriented guy with a passion for flying high. Join me on this rollercoaster called life, where success, family, and a little silliness take center stage!
