Hello! I'm Derek Tucker
I'm an Industrial Designer currently working as an Industrial Design & UX Intern for Medtronic. After 2 years of studying mechanical engineering, I found my passion for design and currently attend Auburn University pursing a Bachelor's of Industrial Design. 
I believe design holds incredible power and responsibility to shape positive human interactions and be inclusive, diverse, and sustainable to continually better the world around us. As I continue to grow, I look forward to the opportunities to learn and practice human-centered design everywhere I can.
Alongside learning about different fields of design, I enjoy other hobbies such as tennis, music, weight-lifting, drone flying, chess, and photography.
“When you understand the people you’re trying to reach—and then design from their perspective—not only will you arrive at unexpected answers, but you’ll come up with ideas that they’ll embrace.” - IDEO
