Born in Papua New Guinea to expat parents, Darren has always had a soft spot for Papua New Guinea, so it is little wonder that in 2000 his first trip with Open Heart International was to Port Moresby.

He has since been part of over 20 project visit teams to PNG, Solomon Islands, Cambodia, Rwanda and Tanzania (East Africa), and is now a Project Coordinator in PNG and East Africa.

Darren is the Head of Anaesthesia at Prince of Wales Hospital in Sydney.
