“A LEADER IN REDEFINING OUR RESTAURANT TO A POINT OF SUCCESS FINANCIALLY, AND OPERATIONALLY. UNDER DARREN'S GUIDANCE WE'VE ACHIEVED OUR BEST REVIEWS AND PROFIT MARGINS, IN YEARS.”
FARM at Carneros (Napa)

Darren has done it all when it comes to providing superior front of the house management and service training – from working at a popular suburban location to leading the service staff at several of the country’s most lauded, celebrity chef restaurants. His staff training and secret shopping skills provide instant value to consulting clients by streamlining operations, strengthening morale and improving the diner’s restaurant experience. Crafting wine programs and cocktail lists to cost effectively match food, budget and clientele is another part of his repertoire that leads to increased revenues and bottom line profits.

Darren is also a much sought after photographer and videographer. He counts many of Napa and Sonoma’s leading wineries and chefs among his appreciative clientele thanks to an ability to perfectly capture not only the allure of a venue’s food and wine, but the architecture and ambiance as well.
