About Me

Hello, my name is Darren. I am a relative newbie to WordPress and web development in general. Sure I’ve dabbled in the past and actually had a quite substantial website set up in 2013 timeframe but didn’t renew my hosting plan after a year. Well, I’ve now signed a 10-year term so I can actually really dig in and provide something that I can be proud of.

A little about me, I am a fast approaching middle aged man, originating from the English-Scottish border country (Northumberland to be exact) I emigrated to the USA following my college graduation in 1995 before becoming a fully fledged U.S. citizen in 2007. I am an animal lover and used to own three cats and two dogs (all of which stayed with my ex-wife).

I have pursued a number of career paths over the years, including serving in the U.S. Army. Other jobs have included an Assistant Managing Editor for The Washington Post Company, a Public Affairs officer for the U.S. Navy, a Proposal Writer for one of the country’s largest construction companies, a Graphics Designer and a Technical Writer, now Cloud Services Writer for a large (70,000 + employees) government contractor.

In my spare time I love going to the movies (love, my moviepass card), reading books (primarily non-fiction), traveling, spending time with my dogs and cats (I get to see them whenever I want) and of course writing. Like all former journalists I have at least one novel in the works and of course writing is going to come in handy working this website.
