About Damian

I'm a 10 year US Air Force veteran turned pacifist, who is using his talents, as guided by his beliefs & entrepreneurial spirit, for social good, like:

- The Random Acts of Kindness Daily Club or The RAKD Club (www.rakd.club (under construction))
--This is the venture upon which I'm currently focusing and need the following (preferably in Florida, so investors can meet you):
---- COO - experience in nonprofit industry (strong financial background preferred)
---- CTO - experience with developing and acting as liaison with large development firm
---- CMO - experience in growth marketing and fundraising

But I'm also passionate about the following:

- A nonprofit called, Inked for Peace (www.inkedforpeace.org)
- A self-help franchise called, Baseline Your Life (www.baselineyourlife.com)

I possess a Master's in Entrepreneurship with an emphasis on Marketing. I excel at business strategy, but can also get my hands dirty with initial and routine business tasks, such as, graphic and web design, sales and lead generation, and operations and project management. I am also an unparalleled creative problem-solver with superb verbal and written communication skills. I intend to offer the world viable ways in which to promote sustainable peace on every realm of existence - body, heart, mind, and soul - and across all disciplines - philosophical, political, cultural, etc. Ultimately, I’d like to leave the world better than I found it.

I'm also working on the following when so inclined:

- A definitive Top 100 Films of All Time List (www.exemplaryfilms.com)
- A screenplay and companion media guide (www.reltoall.com)
- An epic graphic novel called, "Made in Hyper-City" (www.mh-c.info)
- A product meant to bring separated loved ones closer (www.mailablehugs.com)

I am looking for connections of any sort, but specifically partners for my ventures. I've been working tirelessly on startups in various industries - nonprofits, self-help, media/entertainment, personal information management, and specialty retail - and if I've learned anything as a solopreneur, it's that I can't build such innovative companies all on my own. It's funny, but the difficulty isn't in finding people who would be passionate about the mission and vision behind each company, but finding people who aren't already passionate about their own companies they've envisioned. Nonetheless, please feel free to reach out and let's see about connecting.

...because if nothing else works out, I could also use employment as a consultant or within your startup/company. I guarantee I would prove a valuable asset either way.
