While growing up, Damien got his passion for helping people from his father, the Chief Shop Steward for the Teamsters at New York’s JFK Airport. Damien had an interest in the markets at a young age when his grandfather first bought him some stock, which Damien then tracked in the newspaper on a regular basis. In college, his economics professor further inspired him to pursue a degree and career in finance.
