In his spare time, Damon takes full advantage of recreating in the Rockies with his wife and daughter.
What’s the most non-traditional job you’ve ever had?
For 3 Seasons, I was a 5th and 6th grade boys basketball Head Coach. Working with the kids was a great experience that taught me patience. Teaching them the “Pick and Roll” was much harder than you think.
What sports star would you most like to meet?
Peyton Manning. The man is a legend.
