He has diverse professional experience ranging from medical operations and planning, logistics, consequence management response, and medical systems development and training with the Army, Department of Defense, NATO, and the Governments of Iraq and Afghanistan. Damon graduated from the University of Texas at San Antonio with a degree in
anthropology and received his master’s degree in healthcare administration from the University of the Incarnate Word and is a member of the National Association of Rural Mental Health.

After retiring, Damon and his family opened their produce farm and nursery outside of Fort Cavazos (Hood), Texas. From there he took his experiences in agriculture, healthcare, and as a disabled Veteran to help others and began volunteering with Veterans, first-time farmers, individuals with disabilities, and kindergarten to college students to grow future agricultural producers. Damon and his family use their farm to train and mentor individuals from the Texas AgrAbility Battleground to Breaking Ground Program, the Farmer Veteran Coalition, Texas Tech University, Central Texas College, Texas 4-H, Texas Farm Bureau youth programs, and anyone else who wants to learn about agriculture and rural health. Damon lives with his wife Cene’, a psychiatric RN and Total Farmer Health Coach, and the youngest two of their four children on their farm where agriculture and health are a family affair.
