Darrell T. Boyd is the founder of the Renewable Elemental Energy Law Rangers, LLC dba REEL Rangers, LLC based in Cleveland, Ohio. The mission of the REEL Rangers is to advance and support renewable energy initiatives and programs that help to develop, sustain and safeguard the five renewable energy sources: Biomass, Solar, Geothermal, Wind, and Water.
REEL Rangers Adventures is a science-fiction e-book series created to promote renewable energy awareness and ecology education among youth and young adults. To this end, Darrell envisions establishing the REEL Rangers Institute with the goal of providing a comprehensive curriculum based on environmental sciences. Beginning at the secondary school level, the Institute will enroll students who will be cultivated to excel in environmental sciences and renewable energy technology. The Institute will encourage each student to develop strength of mind, body, and character to the highest levels. The Institute will foster a Restore Our Earth spirit by inspiring enthusiasm, devotion, and strong regard for the integrity of the REEL Rangers.
During the past 30 years, Darrell T. Boyd has worked in many areas of publishing including advertising sales, market research, newsletter publishing, and more recently book publishing through his own enterprise, Pen to Press. His career began in advertising with U.S. News & World Report in Washington, DC and New York City. After returning to his hometown of Cleveland, Ohio, Darrell immersed himself in the local media working with Call & Post Newspapers and Crain's Cleveland Business.
When the internet began to adversely impact newspaper and magazine publishing, Darrell was compelled to reflect on his personal mission and redirect himself towards more fulfilling work in non-profit management. As Associate Director with the Council for Health & Human Service Ministries (CHHSM), he provided administrative oversight to the Council’s ministry of mission interpretation and public policy advocacy.
In 2005, Darrell and his partner, Joyce Morrow-Jones, established Pen to Press, a self-publishing business that empowered authors, artists, educators, and entrepreneurs to conceptualize and market their visions and ideas.
Darrell serves on the Board of Directors for UMECS: The Center for Peace, Education and Development. Based in Uganda, the Center supports secondary school and higher education for children and youth affected by conflict and poverty, together with school-based peace education and guidance and counseling programs, and helps to build cultures of peace to prevent new wars.
The REEL Rangers Adventures series is rooted in Darrell's zeal for science fiction and passion for protecting our natural resources.
