Darren is a passionate musician who utilizes his craft to create motivational experiences for the individuals served by NeuroRestorative Maine. Darren has always been participant-focused, and he uses music as a way to build rapport with the individuals he serves. Shortly after starting his career at NeuroRestorative Maine, Darren partnered with one of our Recreational Therapists to obtain a rehearsal space and form a participant-led rock band. This inclusive band has served to give individuals a sense of accomplishment while simultaneously working on cognitive skills such as memory, attention to task, fine and gross motor skills, social pragmatics and more in a meaningful way. Through Darren’s leadership, the group has gone on to play at local fairs, festivals, fundraisers, and other community venues of varying sizes. He has also utilized his background in the film industry to help establish a Theater program in order to work on recall, communication skills, and abstract thinking skills.
