About Derek

My name is Derek Kjenstad, 

welcome to my page of braggadocio!

I grew up in a dairy and grain farm, in a small farm community in South Dakota. Always involved and always meeting new people, this sparked my entrance to the Entertainment industry.

     I studied Advertising, and Speech Communications at South Dakota State University. The one and only SDSU! Gaining a Bachelors of Science, focusing in the the business and creative content production of advertising.

     Yes I am that guy that became a professional entertainer. I have experience in front of the camera as well as behind, on and off stage development, writing, pre-production, post-production, as well as experiencece in working with others making fantasy projects come to life!

   There is no such thing as a wasted experience, and I work to experience a little bit of everything. You never know where someone, something or some topic might take you.

    You can talk to me about the Minnesota Vikings, then the politics of buying a cake and then 3 minutes later I will give you a rant about the fact that "indubitably" is the best word in the dictionary. You never know what you will get with me, but you know it will be a good time. That is the fun of talking to and creating with Derek Michael Kjenstad!

 Any other information you are curious about, please feel free to contact me through my contacts page.
