Hi RIDERS! My name is Derick Perkins. I am thrilled to say that I have accepted a position at RIDE TV as an Affiliate Marketing intern for this spring semester.
A little about me, I am a Fort Worth native and a true Texan at heart. I am a Junior at the University of Texas at Arlington, majoring in Advertising and minoring in Communication Technology. UTA has introduced various opportunities to me such as pledging my Fraternity Phi Delta Theta, studying abroad in Spain and Interning for RIDE TV. I hope one day to start a career as a media strategist and climb the ladder to success.
A few more fun facts about me is that I am always down for some tacos and queso, I am the dad to two cocker spaniel pups, the TV show “Mad Men” is what first got me interested in Advertising and I used to race horses. In conclusion, I am very excited to excel in my career with this internship and I look forward to the RIDE!
