Darwin’s process and creativity is something I’ve learned to trust and admire after working together for several years now. As a director, he allows the freedom to explore character, environment and also listens to the actor’s concerns. He understands and caters to each individual’s way of working. It’s important to collaborate with people you trust and feel comfortable with. Darwin has a very unique vision which never disappoints!
— Johnny Cannizzaro, Actor (Jersey Boys, Mob City)
