After growing up in Northern California and getting a bachelors degree in biology from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, acting, and AMAW, found Darrell in an inspired series of events and changed the course of his life. Succeeding some commercial success and having no prior acting training, Darrell found his way to the teaching of AMAW, fell in love with process, and in turn acting. Getting to know oneself on a profoundly deeper level, and then revealing those newly exposed parts of you through the work, is what drew Darrell to working in this way and kept him coming back. After years of working and growing in the Los Angeles studio, Anthony, and the wonderful people at AMAW, entrusted Darrell with the responsibility, and pleasure of teaching for his Atlanta studio. Acting changed the course of Darrel's life, and has given some of the most enlightened and beautiful moments he's ever experienced. His goal is to cultivate a space for those moments so that he can share the gifts AMAW has given to him with his students.
