Damien Willis - Editor

Las Cruces, NM

Columnist / Copy Editor / Freelance Journalist / Copywriter / Poet / Radio Program Director


I am a creative person, still searching for a medium. I am a passionate and proficient writer, and am slowly learning photography and design. I'm interested in typography, psychology, and etymology. Somehow, these passions have led me to a career "on-the-air," and my writing has found a longtime home in the pages of the Las Cruces Sun-News. I've emceed numerous clubs and concerts, interviewed President Barack Obama (and First Lady Michelle), and scores of celebrities--some of whom I'm fortunate to count as friends, My objective is to stay busy, and to make the world a better place through my efforts, both at work and play. And to never stop learning.
