Derrick "For The Trees" Acosta (born 1985) is a a writer, actor, editor, and co-founder for Mega64. He portrays Horatio and Derek in the show. He has also appeared on nearly every single Mega64 podcast. His podcast etiquette is subjectively brilliant, and he is always the first to chime in on something about nature, being somewhat of a wildlife fan. He is very outspoken, and very sociable. Derrick also plays some critical characters in the series, with a steady hand he guides the camera and centers it on the action and that is how we get the images onscreen. His approach to filmmaking comes off as all in good fun to the audience. His favorite holiday is Arbor Day, and is an expert of all things Kwanzaa.
Derrick Acosta says
Halloween Arbor Day is his favorite holiday. (CITATION: PODCAST 508, at 03:04)
He plays a successful role in the series, outward appearances would indicate that he enjoys life with great friends, makes videos where people haven't the slightest clue exactly what the hell they are up to, all while getting slightly above minimum wage for it. [CITATION NEEDED] Derrick is a good example of someone who doesn't take himself too seriously, and he also takes life in stride. He may be frank and direct with certain issues or with certain people, but he always strikes a reasonable chord somewhere along the way. As his bio below states, he is a friendly guy.
It has been stated several times by the other members of Mega64 that Derrick is not only the best looking but the most talented out of all the members. He has a beard, or a mustache.
Aside from Mega64, Derrick occasionally runs his channel "goosetoffoh". The name was the nickname that he was given in high school when he first met Rocco and Shawn. In the theater class that he joined, apparently Shawn and the other students had thought Derrick's name was Gustavo - to which Derrick had mutated to be spelt as 'Goosetoffoh.' He has expressed annoyance at the fact that, despite coming up with the spelling for the name, he still cannot register it on certain sites.
On goosetoffoh, Derrick posts skits directed and written by him like "Evil Derrick" and "The Roomm they poop on each others butts ate" with the help of Mega64 and friends. He also makes music videos for bands like the "Seacats", "Mrs. Magician" and "Plateaus". The music videos are usually live action with effects but sometimes he does a different technique like in the "Plateaus Do It for You" music video, he used stop motion. For the music videos, he and his friend Dustyn Logan Peterman run the multimedia studio D&D Productions.
