Derek Arteta

Derek Arteta Biography

Derek grew up in Covina, California, and graduated cum laude from the University of California, Los Angeles with a bachelor of arts degree in psychology and an emphasis in business administration. He later graduated cum laude from the University of California, Hastings College of the Law in San Francisco. As a first-year lawyer, he rose to the challenge of being assigned by his law firm to be sole clearance attorney for "The Man Show," starring Jimmy Kimmel and Adam Carolla – two personalities who were always pushing the boundaries in terms of legally questionable stunts. Now the vice president of business and legal affairs for a movie studio, Derek negotiates deals relating to motion picture production and provides legal counsel to the studio's home entertainment division. When he's not working, Derek is a huge reality TV fan and an avid bicyclist who helps train riders for a California bike-riding fundraiser for AIDS services and education. Derek thinks he should be the next Apprentice because, he says, "I'm not afraid to take risks and make my voice heard, and while I generally respect boundaries, I'm never afraid to overstep them for the sake of advancement of a good idea."
