"Mixing products is one of my addictions.  Building my pizza oven I wanted it to have a post-war look to it.  As if a small Italian mason built it with materials he found on his land.  

My colleagues at the quarries said "A small Italian did build it." 

Derek grew up in the trades laboring for his family's stone business.  Starting on his own in 1990 he began to create his own designs with the integrity of the installation process he learned from his father. Currently he is co-owner of Dean & Derek Inc., where he and his cousin Dean Marsico continue the family business going into it's 55th year. Today they specialize in Outdoor Living, Hardscape, Landscape Design & Installation.
