Darren started making music on computers when he was a teenager in 1987. His first computer was an Amiga, and when he realized the power of computer-based production, his addiction for making electronic music began. Darren switched to Mac in 1994 and started using Logic Pro. He's been involved in many music projects over the years including Psychoid. For two years Darren travelled with Apple showing Logic Pro to visitors of Macworld, NAMM, Remix Hotel and NAB. Currently, he teaches a class in L.A. on electronic music production using Logic for Logic Pro Help. Darren also runs two small businesses on Mixing, Mastering and Logic Pro training and support.
