In 2017, Damien's debut script Apocalypse Wales won him a place on the BAFTA Rocliffe TV Comedy Forum list.

Two further pilot scripts gave him longlist placings in the David Nobbs Memorial Trust New Writers competition and the BCG/Sitcom Geeks Script Challenge.

Damien also has professional writing credits on BBC Radio 4 Extra's Newsjack programme and the podcast spin-off, Newsjack Unplugged.

As a broadcaster, Damien has worked on some of the most popular radio stations around the UK. His dry, irreverent style has been heard in places like London, Cardiff, the Midlands, the South Coast and lovely Guernsey.

The Thicktionary, his debut podcast with fellow comedian Paul Gannon, is available now.
