Damian has a lifelong interest in the arts, and has worked in print, theatre, and video.
He served as on-set Sound Recordist or Camera Operator for five feature-length narrative movies, a one-hour documentary, many short dramas, a couple of TV commercials, and many shorts for the Web. As a freelance Videographer, he shot and edited stage performances, public lectures, award presentations, comedy sketches, and interviews. He worked as both volunteer and employee for community television channels in BC, Ontario, and the Yukon.
For three years, Damian was Editor of Independent Voice, the progressive community paper of Kingston, Ontario. He systematized the design, streamlined the workflow, and cultivated a community of contributors. He also performed the desktop-publishing chores to prepare the paper for print, and updated the paper's website with the full contents of each issue.
Before that, he was a founding editor of Write Away (now Island Writer), a magazine promoting the literary arts that is now an established part of the cultural scene of Vancouver Island.
Damian is also a Writer and Editor. His stage plays have been performed internationally by independent theatre troupes. His prose fiction and comics work has been published to some small acclaim. His critical evaluations of others' work have been described as “both diplomatic and helpful”.
He has also been a freelance writer and editor for such clients as the BC provincial government, the Galiano Island Chamber of Commerce, the National Farmers' Union, and private clients.
