J. Damany Daniel
Chief Imaginator, The Event Nerd
J. Damany Daniel (the J is silent) hails from Brooklyn, NY and merges all the style of the big city with the charm, warmth, and humour (yes, with a “u”- he secretly wants to be Australian) of one of your best friends. An experienced and award-winning event producer, Damany (AKA “The Event Nerd”) has produced experiences for clients across the globe and always brings a unique flair to everything he touches. An avid student of emerging trends in technology and storytelling and the impact of community and culture, this event nerd firmly believes that technology can do more than just amaze people at events. If used properly, technology can and does provide opportunities to connect people, extend the reach of events far past the closing curtain, and create immersive experiences that have guests and clients alike connected with the cause and experience in ways they never thought possible. Listed as one of Special Events Magazine's 30 under 40 to watch, Damany's passion for technology is matched only by his love of the arts and culture.
A humorous and engaging presenter, Damany brings his passion for experiences and his love of people to everything he is a part of. An avid lover of music and dancing, Damany’s been known to tear up more than a few dance floors in his time. When he’s not dancing, producing events or “nerding out” over the study of creativity, Damany’s indulging in his love for great food, delicious brews, and scintillating conversation.
In addition to his work leading the badassery that is The Event Nerd team, Damany's commitment to culture is shown through his work within the city as a founding member of Dallas’ Mayor’s Star Council, and within the historic Deep Ellum community of Dallas as a Trustee of the Deep Ellum Foundation. By working and celebrating its successes, Damany continues to stand as a creative leader within the community and the city.
