Damien came to Essential Partners with a drive to help foster healthier environments for open dialogue on sensitive issues. Personally, he's most interested in the ways community members converse with one another about political issues and matters of public policy. Damien studied Philosophy at Wesleyan University and lived in Boston from 2014-2017, where he fell in love with the mission of courageous conversation amidst difference. He currently lives in his home town of Portland, Maine.
