You’ve probably amassed the first couple of obvious facts about me. I’m a freelance writer who seems to have an obsession with mid to late 90’s professional wrestling.

Out of a desire to network and establish a social media presence, I started “detention with dean derryX” for fun back in 2010. I kept with it, and as things have evolved and my years of experience working as a cook in my family’s Italian specialties shop has peered through my writing, my perspective on dining, cooking, and the NY capital region have become my main focus. I’ve even been invited to teach cooking classes locally. I now focus a lot on fitness, and I am a certified DDP Yoga Level 1 Instructor.

While dining and fitness are things for which I have deep passion, I appreciate the many intricacies of things like film, music, literature and other arts. I think all of these things can be fun and a source of enjoyment, so I like having this space to highlight my experiences and hope that sharing with you helps you tailor your own experiences.
