Interests & hobbies

Darren’s quick wit and sense of humor are possibly why he’s one of the most liked partners at our firm. He could talk your ear off about his work, but he’d rather talk about his latest fishing or hunting trip with his brothers. Darren also enjoys spending time with his wife and two daughters. As a graduate from St. Cloud State University, he’ll forever be a Husky fan!
