Darren has worked in philanthropy for more than 20 years and his experiences range from higher- education, an international NGO, healthcare, and numerous volunteer boards and committees. As a seasoned development professional who appreciates the multi-faceted work of his profession, Darren is passionate about making an impact through philanthropy.
When he is not serving nonprofits or their supporters, Darren enjoys exploring the West in any way he can. From backpacking, piloting, mountain biking, or running – the landscape of California and beyond is an irresistible invitation to explore. He is a 6-year US Navy veteran who was assigned to an F/A-18 squadron on the West coast.
Darren’s dedication to charitable estate planning and striving for excellence in the development profession is only eclipsed by his love of good food, devotion to his wife, and teenage children. He lives in Northern California.
