Hi, I'm Damian

I like storytelling and breathing life into old jokes.


Once upon a time in 2001...

There was an IT developer from London who followed his girlfriend to Singapore.

He swapped a stack of code for a dictionary and thesaurus. And entered the mysterious world of advertising.

He worked for many giants, including Singapore Airlines, Lexus, and IBM. And was lucky enough to marry his girlfriend.

Now, he's a storyteller at Lenovo, dad of two pesky kids, and lives with a cat that hates closed doors.

A beginning, a muddle, & an end

How many copywriters does it take to change a light bulb?

Two. One to screw the bulb most of the way in; the other to give it a nice twist at the end.
