Though generally quiet in private, Damian comes to life on-stage.
He worked as a spruiker in shopping centres across Melbourne for almost 10 years and has MCed everything from concerts, benefits, awards nights, festivals and in-store appearances to exclusive music industry performances, competitions, launches and charity events.
In 2006, Damian was invited to be the audience warm-up man for the fourth series of the TV smash Dancing With The Stars, again providing his warm-up skills for the pilot of Naomi Robson’s, “The Naomi Show” (2007), also for the 7 Network.
Since 2000, he’s been the host of a number of concerts and performances for the City Of Melbourne, along with countless in-store appearances for authors, TV presenters and recording artists.
Damian has also been the host of Highpoint Shopping Centre’s renowned Star Search talent quest for several years.
Hosting in front of just 100 people or 10,000 people, Damian knows how to get the job done.
