Scott Damian

Creative Director

With an artist’s heart and a business mindset, Damian has earned a place in show business as a writer, producer and director. Business, dedication and loyalty comes first in Damian’s work ethics, and he knows these virtues will radiate in JetNest.

Leaving his native home of New Orleans, where he graduated from Loyola University of New Orleans in English Writing and Literature, Damian traveled abroad and landed in Oxford at The British American Drama Academy (BADA).
In November of 2013, Damian’s long-awaited memoir, Voice: A Stutterer’s Odyssey, hit bookshelves through Behler Publication. In this riveting memoir, Damian shares his thirty-five year bout with his severe stuttering and the ramifications that come with such a detrimental speech impediment.

The film is slated to premiere in 2016. In the fall of 2016, Damian will be directing the new, irreverent, and hilarious musical, “The Quarter Slot Sisters”, which has been in development in the LA area.
