DAMIEN KOMALA

DESIGNER - DEVELOPER - CROSSFITTER - SURFER

ABOUT ME

Visual artist and designer/ developer for over 18 years. Ohio native. By my estimate, I could survive approximately 12 days in the wild by relying on my keychain attachments alone. I make a mean omelet and my dog will occupy your lap without asking. Surfer, rock climber, crossfitter, bacon enthusiast. Years of experience in the design and development field have given me a wealth of knowledge. I’ve designed and built sites for countless clients around the world from restaurants to resorts, online e-commerce sites to simple brochure sites. I'm prepared to take on even the most complicated projects and always love a challenge. Additional experience includes PPC, SEO, site planning, jQuery, PHP, CSS, social media marketing, email marketing, package design, branding, project management and the list keeps on going.

TESTIMONIALS

With many of my clients, I "know" what I want my web projects to be- and for many of them, like my own, I will design them. Its just much easier for me to hire someone to really make them work. Damien is who I call, because he constantly absorbs the latest and greatest technologies and tricks and stores them all in his head- without his head or his ego expanding to compensate. And I mean that! Many times I have given Damien incomplete information, whether from just not having it or not expressing everything in my head, and despite this, he goes for it and fills in the gaps with his own common sense. And its usually right on the mark- if not inspirational for solving the other parts I dont know yet. Sometimes we find that indeed my mind was going else where. He listens, and comes back with something totally different and is open to changes if needed. He doesnt take them personally.This is one talented guy, and I get excited when I hear about new projects that I know he can do.

Working with Damien is a professional pleasure. Damien is extremely knowledgable and patient. As a seasoned designer there isn't much Damien hasn't done. Whether it's hand coding sites or designing print ad work, he's had extensive experience with all aspects of design. I highly recommend working with Damien if you want a professional job done right.

Probably the most lackluster birthday I've ever had. I did nothing but move the entire weekend + Monday (my 40th birthday). Bishop and I made our way down to G's Boathouse for lunch but other than that, really I did nothing fun. Hopefully I'll have

So I finally finished my last two dives yesterday to complete my PADI certification. Unfortunately my rental gear was quite shit. My suit had a quarter sized hole right in the taint, talk about letting some cold water in right at the wrong spot. My

My first impression of the JK Congo Pro rack was, “wow, this thing is a beast”. It’s probably the best cage I’ve ever seen for a 4 door soft-top Jeep Wrangler JK. Constructed of heavy (and I do mean heavy) duty 2” steel tubing.The installation
