At one point in his life, Darren used to be a really good piano player. Then he decided to compose: at the age of fifteen he wrote a piece for the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra, and then it all went downhill. After finishing his degree at McGill and living and loving Montreal for twelve years, Darren is now based out of Los Angeles.
Amongst his credits, Darren recreated Canada's second national anthem, the beloved Hockey Theme, for CTV and TSN. His work on Bell Canada’s Orchestra spot, run during the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, was voted as Canada’s top commercial by readers of The Globe and Mail. His critically acclaimed work on the mini-series Lost Years garnered him a 2012 Canadian Screen Award nomination. His feature and short film scores have been heard at prestigious film festivals around the world, including Toronto, Cannes, and Sundance.
Darren currently serves as the Second Vice President of the Screen Composers Guild of Canada, and acts as a Program Advisor for the Canadian Film Centre's Slaight Music Residency. He is represented by Maria Machado of the prestigious Gorfaine/Schwartz Agency.
