Darius has continually created new experiences and believes in passion before profit.
Earning his undergraduate degree in Civil Engineering from Southern University A&M in Baton Rouge LA (1999) and his MBA from Queens University in Charlotte NC (2005), Darius has gained valuable experience in multiple industries.
