currently serving as our Chief Operating Officer he’s a key part of our

Darren is accomplished in indoor and outdoor rock climbing, racquetball, hiking, fishing and spelunking (a fancy term for caving). His outdoor interests have taken him to Alaska, Canada, Mexico and Australia. Come to think of it, Darren’s the ideal target for our Weekend Warrior gift collection!
