About Darrell

Teacher, businessman, author, world traveler.   All these titles aptly describe Darrell Gartrell.


Those that known him best understand that he is constantly striving to better himself, endeavoring to reach new heights, and never afraid to break new ground where ever he goes. 


So it is with his latest project—a gripping personal memoir—where Mr. Gartrell unravels the kimono of his former life as a successful

businessman in Asia where he lived for close to two decades. 


It is a stirring account of how he went from the tough streets of South Central Los Angeles to owning a national chain of distinguished educational centers across Japan.
