After one of his overseas combat tours as a combat medic, Damien and his family relocated to Johnstown in 2007. Damien knew right away that Johnstown was special, and he quickly established his home and began immersing himself into everything that is Johnstown.

In 2010, Damien joined the Town of Johnstown Council where he served until the summer of 2015 when he took a job out of state. After one quick year away, Damien and his family knew it was time to return “home” and to their many friends and the community of Johnstown.

For the past couple of years, Damien has enjoyed being part of Johnstown where he serves as Commander of the local Veterans organization. He also enjoys riding his motorcycle and attending the many community events around Johnstown and Northern Colorado.

Damien received his degree in Business from Colorado State University. He works as a regional manager Sterile Processing (Cleaning, Disinfection and Sterilization for medical devices) for UCHealth Northern Colorado and is also a national and international speaker on leadership, process management and infection prevention.

He enjoys spending his personal time with his wife (Shannon) and his stepson and daughter. Also, he has his “fuzzy son” Finnegan who is always by his side and even rides in his sidecar motorcycle. If he is not working or volunteering for our community, Damien enjoys writing and working around the house.
