One-on-One with Darrin:


Who is your favorite entertainer?

I like the band U2 because of the hidden, and not so hidden, messages in their music.

What do you like to do in your free time?

I really enjoy playing volleyball and watching my kids play soccer.

Did you have a nickname as a child?

When I was young, people called me Little Ork (because my brother was Big Ork).
