Executive Director

Email: Darren@rainbowfamilies.org

Darren joined Rainbow Families as Executive Director in 2018. He, his husband John, and their teen-age son had been members for several years; as parents they found value in the services, resources and community connections provided.

He brings over 25 years’ corporate travel management background, including serving as Travel Manager at DreamWorks SKG studios, and travel operations at Warner Bros, Universal Studios, plus other roles managing above-the-line travel services and logistics for film, television and music industries.

A Los Angeles transplant, Darren previously served as a Board Member and Development Director of the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles. He was Speakers Bureau Director with Love Is Feeding Everyone, receiving their Community Outreach Award, and worked extensively with Project Angel Food. Here in Washington DC, he is an active member of the DC LGBTQ+ Leaders Group, as well as the DC Queer Space Coalition, and volunteers with the Catalogue for Philanthropy.

Particularly with today’s political, racial, environmental and other struggles - including threats to LGBTQ+ familyhood - Darren continues his dedication to serving our community through empowerment, resources, education, and support. Perhaps now more than ever.

I am incredibly passionate about social justice work and advocacy, and I want more than anything to see a world without hate and violence, especially towards groups and communities that are facing both of those currently. I love working with Rainbow Families and helping be a part of this great mission."
