Damian's dream is internationally renowned + impactful filmmaking. Bullied as a Queer kid in a conservative farmtown, she strives to represent Queer excellence. Damian is celebrated for his chameleonic and magnetic presence onscreen and onstage. Their intention is to pioneer better representation for Queer folks, skewering performative masculinity and redefining what it means to be strong. As a spiritual practitioner, she aims to develop an unmistakably embodied presence, articulating the subtleties of the personal and expanding the specific into the universal.
Live simply so others can simply live.
