Damian began his post-secondary music education at Keyano College in Fort McMurray, AB, studying with Laura Glover for two years. He then transferred to the University of Lethbridge to study with Dr. George Evelyn for the next three years to complete his Bachelor of Music Degree in Voice. While attending the university, Damian was a member of the University of Lethbridge Singers. This group toured and performed in Nova Scotia and Newfoundland in 2000 and in Ireland in 2002. Damian was selected to represent Alberta in the National Youth Choir in 2002 which was conducted by Lydia Adams.
Damian spent another four years in Lethbridge teaching voice, working as a church musician, continuing to sing with the U of L Singers, and being the associate conductor of the Vox Musica choir at the University of Lethbridge.
In 2006, Damian moved to Lloydminster, AB to become a full time voice instructor at Lakeland College Performing Arts. During his four years there, Damian taught a full schedule of students, conducted adult and children's choirs, was the voice coach for musical theatre productions, was the PA announcer for Lakeland College Rustlers basketball and volleyball games, and performed at various functions.
Over the years, Damian has enjoyed being able to perform as a singer and conductor in various concerts and performances.
