Since graduating from the University of Michigan’s College of Architecture and Urban Planning, Damon has worked professionally as an architectural designer throughout Michigan. A native of Ypsilanti, Mich., Damon moved to Detroit to aid in its revitalization. With a belief that equitable development starts with community, he has always leveraged his passion and architectural training to seek solutions to issues stemming from built environment inequities. Damon’s travels to Africa and Europe have provided him with a unique lens through which he can better understand the complexities surrounding community activism on a global scale.

With a hand for design, Damon leads coordination and documentation efforts in various areas of small to large-scale projects. He has worked on a myriad of project types, including residential, sports and entertainment, family recreation centers, tenant and landlord build outs. He enjoys designing, developing and coordinating the client’s vision through all project phases.
