Derek Chou joined the Arcadia Quiz Bowl team in 2008 after taking a tryout on a whim. He made it to a stable position between Arcadia B/A in his junior year and was on the Arcadia A team for the 2011 HSNCT.
Derek's strongest subject in quiz bowl is non-biological science, with a non-standard focus on astronomy, earth science, and various engineering topics. He sometimes randomly gets art and music questions.
