A Saskatchewan born and raised farm kid, he received a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Michigan Technological University. After a brief professional hockey career and before his 30th birthday, he was disillusioned with working in a large bureaucratic system. Then he read "A General Theory of Bureaucracy" by the late Dr. Elliot Jaques. This and the other works by Jaques and a slow-growing number of colleagues worldwide, led in 1999 to Darwin becoming a Charter Member of the Requisite Organization International Institute (see www.requisite.org)
