Damian’s list of clients, events, festivals and installations is impressively as long as it is varied and includes Eminem, the Foo Fighters, Taylor Swift and Coldplay to Soundwave, Sydney Festival, Future Music and Homebake to name just a small sample. Here’s a guy who was made for events. So how did that happen exactly? “I unloaded my first truck one Sunday morning in 1989 when I was 16 in my home town of Parkes. I fell in love with the energy that was attached to event and have been involved in one area or another [of the events industry] ever since.”
During his exciting career, Damian has been a site manager, tour manager, logistics manager, entertainment co-ordinator, head of production and senior event manager, roles that show his versatility and expertise. His latest baby comes in the form of Electric Gardens, Australia’s new boutique hour music festival that aims to change the way people celebrate the Australia Day Weekend forever.
In the last few years Damian added ‘guest lecturer’ to his list of titles. Students love Damian’s ‘real life’ instruction and benefit greatly from learning from such a seasoned and experienced event professional.
