Damian hails from San Antonio, Texas, and now calls NYC home. He made his NYC debut at the acclaimed Barrow Street Theater in the lead role of the experimental musical ‘Traumnovela.’ That performance garnered him mention in the New York Times and praise from Backstage Magazine as having ‘…a beautiful singing voice.’ Since then he has played lead roles in Henry V, The Wiz, Cats, Dreamgirls, Ragtime, Man of La Mancha, Kiss Me Kate, Showboat, Equus, Festival of the Lion King (Hong Kong), and performed with Grammy Winner Wynton Marsalis in The Abyssinian Mass.
In addition to theater, Damian regularly appears in contemporary operas, films and television. He originated the operatic roles of John Tubman (Harriet Tubman: How I Crossed Over) and Frederick Douglass (Truth), and was featured in the award-winning film Emily & Tim, with Academy Award winner Olympia Dukakis. On television, Damian has appeared on ABC, The Travel Channel, TLC, Investigation Discovery, and his webseries have been viewed more than 100,000 times!
When Damian isn’t on the stage or set, he prefers to stay at home with his family. They all know how much he adores food…and destroying them at MarioKart!
