Meet Derek

Founder of DollarProbs

Derek Shumway is convinced every human being possesses mad skills like no other.

It takes guts and a serious drive to create beyond belief. While daydreaming in class one day, Derek looked out at all the students. He wanted to find a way where they could freely share their talent and earn a satisfying boost. His passion for the gig economy drove him to create DollarProbs.

When he first started out, Derek drew a plethora of sketches and designs for a dedicated freelance platform. From paper to reality, he’s lived the entrepreneur lifestyle of wearing all the hats when it comes to starting your own business. He’s learned about the life of web developers, graphic designers, marketers, and target audiences all along the way.

Derek officially founded DollarProbs LLC in July 2018 at the age of 22. The company is based in his hometown of American Fork, Utah. He built DollarProbs from the ground up all while going to school full-time, holding down a real job, and doing everything else a busy college student would do to stay social.

Derek was born on the east coast of China in a city famous for its fried rice and jade. He was adopted to America at a young age, is a native English speaker, and is fluent in Québécois French from serving his mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Montréal, Canada.

His intrigue for business skyrocketed in ninth grade when he bought stock in Apple. Derek has taught a community course on the stock market and authored over 130 pages of policy and procedure manuals. He holds an AS degree from Utah Valley University in University Studies and is currently studying at Brigham Young University for his bachelor's degree.
