Darren holds a BA in English Literature from UC Berkeley. He is an active sports and outdoor enthusiast. “My favorite outdoor adventure is to head out with just my dog for company and a few days worth of food for some tech-free, stress-free backpacking in the Sierras,” he says. “As for cycling, I have 1972 Raleigh International that I’ve been rebuilding into a vintage French-style touring machine. I hope to use it in long-distance brevet competition riding.”
