Hello, my name is Damien Senn and it's nice to meet you here.
I am a creative director, story teller, filmmaker and observational photographer.
For 4 years, I hosted the online Radio Show called People You Should Meet.
I created 'People You Should Meet' to share the stories, wisdom and insights of some of the inspiring people that I have bumped into along my own lifes journey.
I was born in Melbourne, Australia and after stints of living in both London and Los Angeles, I now reside in the English seaside town of St Leonards in East Sussex with my wife, soulmate and creative partner Katrina Love Senn.
In what seems to be another lifetime, I graduated with a commerce degree from the University of Melbourne and qualified as a chartered accountant, before I moved to London in search of my fortune.
In my time 'in the city', I contracted my services out to some of the largest financial institutions in the world including Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank, BNP Paribus and Aviva.
On the surface I had the appearance of a man going somewhere... my choice of work assignments, big consulting fees, tailored suits and nice overseas holidays.
But there was a small problem...
I just wasn't that interested in where I was headed.
I kept trying to reassure myself that the money would somehow make it worthwhile. I sucked it up, feined comformity and did my best to fit in.
But every day I showed up to the office, I wondered why I didn't have the courage to just stop. Call it a day. And get on with doing something more meaningful...
I was trapped inside a golden cage.
My spirit was being held hostage by a life that I didn't want to lead. And the worst part was that I just couldn't see a way out of it.
And then on the 7th of October 2003, at the age of 28, a twist of fate would change my life forever...
To be continued...
