In his words:
”My parents actually were in the hospitality industry.”
”They owned and operated a motel with a restaurant and RV park so I grew up in an entrepreneurial, self-employment type of environment.”
Daily Driven Exotics
In 2012, he founded the Daily Driven Exotics brand.
His main aim with the Daily Driven Exotics brand was to create an aspirational lifestyle brand that combined action sports, exotic automobiles, and popular culture.

In January 2013, he launched his YouTube channel. According to his YouTube bio:
”I spend most of my time making videos for YouTube and then the rest falls in the order from top to bottom FYI.”
Damon has amassed over 2.47 million subscribers to his YouTube channel.

Damon named one of his Ferrari 458 GTR. The car was a show stopper as he attends many events with it. In 2016, he crashed it. The front end has almost disintegrated, and airbags have deployed.
He explains everything in his YouTUbe video entitled – ” CRASHED Ferrari 458 Liberty walk accident Monterey car week 2016.” Damon states that “everyone is ok” and he takes his time to show the extent of the damage.
In the YouTube video posted below you can see him just moments after the crash.
But the good news is everyone was ok and there were no severe injuries.
In 2017, he has accused a Victoria-based news station of misrepresenting his statements. During an interview, he said:
“I think 80 km/h is too slow for summer and 80 km/h is too fast for winter if it’s snowing or raining.”

In 2018, thanks to Houston Crosta of Royalty Exotics of Las Vegas (a company that rents exotic cars), who lent him the keys to his Mansory Edition Bugatti Veyron, Damon was able to make this dream into a reality.
The “standard” Bugatti Veyron is powered by a quad-turbocharged W-16 making 1,000 horsepower. Only 270 examples of the original 16.4 Veyron variant were produced, however, for car enthusiasts with deep pockets who wanted to make it more exclusive, German car customization Masonry applied its exceptional tuning talents to a handful of Veyrons.
For the video, entitled – DRIFTING A BUGATTI VEYRON! *$40,000 Tires Destroyed*”, Damon destroys $40,000 Michelin tires by doing donuts and drifting with the car.
