About me

Derrick Brown



Thank you for visiting my website! Below is a little information to help us get acquainted...



I graduated from Virginia Tech and majored in Biological Science in 2008. I earned my master's degree from Lynchburg College in Educational Leadership in 2012. I completed my doctorate in Leadership Studies from the University of Lynchburg. I know you may be thinking..." None of that has anything to videography!" You are correct! I'm a middle school principal during the day, and videography is another passion of mine. I started videography work over 10 years ago as a hobby, but I have been professionally practicing since 2015. 



I have been married to my Wife Samantha for 10 wonderful years. We were blessed with our beautiful daughter Abigail in 2014. We were thrilled to welcome Lilly to the party in 2016. We have one very energetic pup named Niña (long haired Chihuahua). 


What I value the most 

Faith- I believe my relationship with Christ is the most important relationship I can develop. In Him I find inspiration, peace, strength, and love. 

Family- My family is the reason I do what I do. I love them with all my heart. 

Service- I believe giving back to others and my community is not only important, but it is necessary. I especially have a heart to serve youth, which led me to co-found IRON Lives, INC. a leadership and character-building program for middle and high school students. Visit for more information. 

Storytelling- I believe everyone has a story. I love helping people tell those stories through dramatic and engaging films. I have been creating videos for over 10 years.
