Damien has management experience in building and leading successful teams and technical experience designing and managing large infrastructure projects, both in NewZealand and overseas. Since 2012 he has been involved with projects resulting from the Canterbury Earthquake Sequence; Building Damage Assessments, Seismic Assessments, Strengthening and Earthquake Insurance Claims including expert witness services.

Damien has a particular interest in High Performance Housing and Modular Construction and is active in both PreFab NZ and the Superhomes movement.

Damien loves the peace and tranquillity of the great outdoors spending free time hunting and trout fishing. He sees capturing the scenes and images to share with others with photography as a natural progression of this passion. Damien also enjoys arranging corporate events around Crusaders, All Blacks or Black Caps games. While visiting well over 50 countries in the world, his favourite place is still Lake Clearwater in the Ashburton Lakes District.
