He has worked on projects for several companies and in private for DT and Biohackers UK. Damien started grinding after a bet at work when a co-worker placed their pass in the back of the phone, claiming they had cloned the pass to their phone. He played along, but wanted to find a better way, he found Dangerous Things and ordered the xNTi.
