Darren started tinkering with Linux while at University in the mid 90’s. He knew then that open source software and the Linux environment was where he wanted to focus his career. He has a number of contributions to the mainline Linux kernel. He has also done significant vendor specific work to a variety of kernel versions and other open source software projects.
Darren grew up in the UK, but he moved to the US in 2000 and has lived in Dallas, TX ever since. He is married with two young children who keep him exceptionally busy.
For fun he builds and flies radio controlled airplanes, brews a variety of different styles of beer and loves to be an early adopter for new technologies in the home, becoming recently obsessed with the “Internet of Things.”
