Darren is the Founder and Executive Director of Geospatial Niagara, and holds an Honours BSc. degree in Geography from Brock University (2010) and a Post Graduate Certificate in GIS/Geospatial Management from Niagara College (2011). In 2013 he was elected to the College of Fellows of the Royal Canadian Geographical Society.
He envisions a Niagara where every citizen is an engaged citizen through geographic awareness and access to geospatial technologies and information.
Darren suffers from ADHGID (Attention Deficit Hyper Geographic Information Disorder) This affliction was contracted through his incredible high school geography teachers and causes him to be interested in anything and everything that is remotely “geo” in nature. Promoting geo-literacy throughout Niagara is his passion as it is through geography and geospatial technologies that he believes Niagara can be economically prosperous by capitalizing on the strengths of our post secondary institutions. He will endlessly promote Niagara as a great place to live, work and do business.
