Daren has always been surrounded by electronics. In fact, his dad owned a computer, copier and fax store for the better part of his youth. He would always watch his dad as he worked on different things, although he had no idea what he was doing.
Starting at age 11, Daren got into music and acquired his first drum kit. He continued drumming all throughout school and into college, even majoring in music theory. However, he quickly found out that although he had a serious passion for music, he needed to find a career in something else, as he did not want to teach music.
So, Daren switched majors to computer science and then to information technology. After graduating, he luckily got an IT position at the company he already worked for and has been working in IT ever since, ultimately leading him to InterWorks.
When not at work, Daren enjoys spending time with his wife and three beautiful daughters. He still enjoys playing or listening to music of any kind, getting outdoors whenever possible and savoring a cold beer on a nice summer evening.
