Darren is a Strategic Account Manager for Ernest Packaging Solutions, but that is not all. He is also a Mental Performance Coach, and a college Division 1 Men’s Basketball Referee. Darren was born and lived in San Diego. At the age of nine, his family left the gorgeous weather of San Diego to take on Seattle, the “rain capital” of the United States. It was quite an adjustment, but Darren learned to appreciate the beauty of the Pacific Northwest.
Darren’s love for sports started at a very young age. He played both basketball and baseball in high school and continued playing baseball in college. After two semesters of college, his course changed and he joined the Navy. The Navy influence sparked a Darren that was more mentally tough with good habits and supercharged towards learning. So Darren returned to college and earned a Bachelor’s and later Master’s degree. During Darren’s time in college, he was introduced to refereeing basketball first with little kids and then moving up to the college level. After college, he entered “Darren’s World of Packaging” and worked for several Fortune 500 companies before finding his way to North Carolina. Darren is married to Jen and they are proud parents of a son and daughter.
We are so fortunate to have Darren, Jen, and the kids as neighbors. This puts some finishing touches on completing our own little paradise right here in Holly Springs. By the way, if you are up for a pickleball game, Darren is your guy.
