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 humor (yes, with a “u”- he secretly wants to be British) of one of your best friends. An experienced and award-winning event producer, Damany (AKA “The Event Nerd”) has planned scores of events for clients across the nation and always brings a unique flair to everything he touches. An avid student of emerging trends in technology 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.
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 tech and marketing blogs and new tools, Damany’s indulging in his love for great food, delicious brews, and scintillating conversation.
In addition to his work leading The Event Nerd team, Damany's commitment to culture is shown through his work as the Creative Director at three of Dallas’ most iconic and historic venues- Bomb Factory, Canton Hall, and Trees and his work within the Deep Ellum community. By working within the community and celebrating its successes, The Bomb Factory and Damany continue to stand as leaders within the community and the city.
