State / Region
Skateboarder, Photographer, Musician, Artist, Adventurer. I have been doing all of those things for a good amount of time in my life and its what makes me happy. I played the banjo and toured with the punk rock puppet band Green Jello for eight years traveling all around the world dressing up in costumes of farm animals and being an idiot. I am now planning on moving to China to teach English to Kindergarteners for a year and then buying a bike to travel around the earth with it. I live a very adventurous life.
Our readers would love to get to know you more Damien. Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you?
I play the punk rock banjo, have a square nipple, and I like to sleep on the floor.
Damien, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Photographer?
I began photography when I started touring with the punk rock puppet band "Green Jello". I was traveling a lot and seeing new things and you sorta just get drawn into photography when are having all these new experiences. After awhile I just got addicted to it and I always have a camera in hand now.
Who is your inspiration in life Damien? How do you keep inspired?
I get inspired by people who aren't afraid to be themselves. To be weird and not care what others think. To do what makes you happy and whatever feels right. It keeps me inspired to see other people living there lives how I would like to live.
