Life & Work with Derrion

Today we’d like to introduce you to Derrion.

Hi Derrion, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today.
I was always intrigued by Rollercoasters as a kid. I played rollercoaster tycoon all the time! My family would also visit theme parks often, so it just became a part of my life. I grew up going to parks like Knotts Berry Farm, Disneyland, and Six Flags Magic Mountain all the time. It wasn’t until I realized there were others out there like me, that I wanted to showcase why amusement and theme parks make me so happy!

I enjoyed them so much that I partnered with another brand to grow within the community. Since then, I have moved into my own development by highlighting the best services you can find in these amusement parks all across America. We will soon be planning international destinations to check out the amazing site.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
For the most part, people have been very receptive to MrKingcoaster. I always feel that I can be doing more and try to embrace the challenges by seeking new ways to create content. For example, in the beginning, I used to write a blog posts all the time, well with how social media works now I tend to lean on the side of quick videos that capture amazing rides, foods, and experiences in a short amount of time.

As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
I generally love to entertain! One of the major reasons for starting MrKingCoaster was my love for being in front of the camera. I was recently signed to Helen Wells Agency and just completed my first student film! I want to embrace this journey and focus on developing my craft as an actor.

I believe in keeping true to your values and beliefs in any setting and others can truly see this whether it be through my acting, MrKingCoaster, or research endeavors.

So maybe we end by discussing what matters most to you and why?
Living an honest, humble, and supportive life is so crucial nowadays. If I am able to shed a piece of joy or laughter I feel complete. You never know what others go through so I try to live and respect others no matter how far apart our differences may be.
