A Bit About Me

Darwin Peters is a Multimedia Producer hailing from Lakewood, WA. Although born in Portland, OR, he considers Lakewood his true home since he moved there at a young age due to his father's Air Force job. Besides his role here at In Focus Productions, Darwin serves as an instructor at Clover Park Technical College and holds the position of Tech & Visual Operations Manager at Eight-Twenty-Eight Flow.

 

His educational background is firmly rooted in an Associate's Degree in Media Production from Clover Park Technical College, allowing him to blend technical expertise with artistic vision in his projects.

Beyond being a skilled visual storyteller, Darwin is also an Army veteran, proudly serving from 2009 to 2014. It was during this period that he discovered his passion for photography, a foundation that underpins much of his current work.

Darwin's vision extends beyond his work behind the camera. He aspires to mentor the next generation of creative talents, working to foster diversity in the media industry by providing educational opportunities, including classes and internships, to local minority youth.

Darwin is also an active participant in various boards and committees focused on diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), particularly in relation to youth and public education. Additionally, he dedicates his time to volunteering in local school districts and cherishes moments spent with his wife and seven children.
