Derek Gurr began working at BYU Studies in 2018 as website manager. He is thrilled to be part of an organization where he can learn about the latest scholarly papers on LDS history and doctrine during staff meeting. He graduated from BYU in 2013 with a bachelor’s degree in communications with a public relations emphasis. When he’s not at work, he’s generally with his beautiful wife, Jenni and his three adorable kids. Derek enjoys writing science fiction and fantasy as well as running. He eats way too much cheddar cheese and probably should cut back on the chocolate milk too. Derek and his family live in American Fork.
