Derek Fieldhouse
At a young age, many boys dream of becoming a swashbuckling pirate, or a strong, brave firefighter; Derek Fieldhouse, senior, wanted to be an investment banker. Fieldhouse, who has climbed the corporate ladder of the Amplifier, now acts as Managing Editor.

“I was not interested in following this path,” Fieldhouse said. “I just wanted to improve my writing.”

But writing isn’t the only thing Fieldhouse enjoys. Outside of all the hectic writing, reading and studying,  he can be found running with the cross country team, sleeping, and hanging out with friends. Because he is a senior, Fieldhouse spends many free moments filling out college applications.

“I want to go to a coastal college. I would not be able to withstand being land-locked,” Fieldhouse said.” I think it would be a cool thing to hang out with friends on the beach on the weekends and stuff.”

Fieldhouse is a “complicated mess of stuff,” and enjoys it, because it is his life. The only thing he is looking forward to “is getting out of this place and entering the world of business.”
