Damon grew up in New Mexico where he attended the University of New Mexico, graduating in 2005 with his Masters in Physical Therapy. He moved to the Berkeley area the same year and practiced for 12 years in a private outpatient orthopedic clinic with a strong focus on manual therapy. He became an Orthopedic Clinical Specialist (OCS) in 2009. After traveling the world in 2018, he settled in the Tahoe area.
He enjoys skiing and is a certified bi-ski instructor and has volunteered with Achieve Tahoe for the past 7 years. He also loves to mountain bike, rock climb, kiteboard, sail, surf, camp and hike. He is working on paring down his outdoor activities so he has room in his garage for gear, so please don't tell him about any cool new sports!
