"To me life without creativity is as black & white portrait;uncanvassed"

~Darrius Garrett~


Born November 9, 1980, in the city of Long Beach, California to Edward Sr. & Marie Garrett. Darrius started from humble beginnings being born and raised on the East Side of Long Beach. In a very impoverished part of town drenched by drugs & gang violence. A pure daydreamer, Darrius' childhood was described by most that knew him in his younger years as one with a mind full of dreams to be a well-known name in the Entertainment & literature industry.



As a child Darrius was described by his mother as a pudgy little kid with great imagination and love for music; Darrius was later destined to be known throughout the world, after co-writing the New York Times Bestselling Book "Freedom Writers Diary."  Also,  the character "Marcus" in the film "Freedom Writers" is based on Darrius personal story of homelessness and continuous street violence. The film starred award winning actors & actresses like  Hilary Swank. Since the newfound fame, Darrius has authored his own memoir which accounts his personal life and ties with the Freedom Writers group between 1992 and 2011 titled "Diary of a Freedom Writer." Darrius also has authored other titles currently in the works; with plans to locate a literary agent to connect with a Publisher willing to display his specific art of storytelling with his new titles to the rest of the world Just as it was done for his previous works on the freedom Writers Book. 


Being a husband an a father of four girls, Darrius finds himself consistently working to become a better man, person & pillar of his community. Offering as much wisdom and guidance to his daughters while seeking the same from those he admire and look up to. After, he distributes what he has learned in life and experiences into the world by reaching out and sharing his story & continuous wisdom to most that will hear him one speech at a time; Darrius is diligent in following his heart to help pour into the earthly creations that he loves so much.

Ambitions To become an Inspiration to Many

Darrius first began his speaking career over 20 years ago in the late 90's simply visiting local elementary schools in the area speaking to at-risk youth that resembled himself; along with his fellow Freedom Writer associates sharing his story of gangs,volence,homelesness and drugs. In Darrius speech he simply let them know that they will one day have to face a fork in the road of Good or Eveil, even as he was currently facing his own personal fork in the road himself at the current time.
