Darren grew up near farms and wide open spaces, but never turned down the opportunity to fire up a Nintendo Entertainment System or build just about anything with his dad. He grabbed a B.S. in Business Management from NC State (while hopelessly becoming a lifelong Wolfpack fan), an MBA from Campbell University and a opportunity from Ryan Block to write for Engadget. 5 years later, he’s the site’s Managing Editor, an all-around passionate technology lover, and owner of a Guinness World Record for being the most prolific professional blogger on planet Earth. He also adores travel, and has driven a vehicle in all 50 US states while Murphing countless other nations. He is married to the most gorgeous woman in the world and acts as a dad to a French Bulldog / Boston Terrier mix, named Gangster.
