Meet Our Team
A dedicated and knowledgeable innovator, Grant has over two decades worth of experience in providing clients with creative and marketing solutions.
Grant leads the team in delivering high quality sales through jobs that range from workflow management to media buying. He is also the founder of GoRV, a platform that encapsulates the most experienced RV content producers and media specialists for recreational vehicles.
As an avid Richmond supporter and footy fanatic, he coached a junior football club for a few years. Grant is also a music lover – describing himself as an “old rocker from way back”, he is the bass player in a band with his brother, James. If you’re lucky, you’ll find him rocking out in the office!
As a charismatic and passion driven individual, James has had over two decades worth of experience in working with video and audio production, cinematography, photography and graphic design.
James has been a professional photographer and graphic designer for over 25 years and a cinematographer and video editor for over 10. James is also a music enthusiast and he is able to pour his love for music into the creation of music compositions for jingles and advertisements.
James has completed a degree in Fine Art, with a specialisation in painting. He also played in the AFL for eleven years. This helped James to develop his hardworking and resilient nature, with a strong focus on teamwork, therefore forming strong relationships among clients with ease.
To call Simone an industry legend is probably an understatement! Spending eighteen years in publishing and media, Simone loves what she does. Enthusiastic and friendly – if you need a hand, Simone’s there to help.
Clients love Simone and know her has a friendly face, and most of the relationships she has built at work have become lifelong friendships. Gaining a wealth of knowledge during her time at ACP Magazines, Bauer Media and Caravan World, the knowledge she has gained about the industry is second-to-none.
Outside of work, Simone is the President of the non-for-profit organisation Waverley Multiple Births Association. A busy mother of twin boys (and a greyhound), Simone is always active and loves the outdoors. She loves exploring new places with her family, and she’ll be sure to share her stories of travel gems she finds at home and abroad.
Having completed an Advanced Diploma of Graphic Design, as well as an Advanced Diploma of Creative Product Development in 2013, partially completed as part of an industry placement program, Will took on real world design jobs as part of his training, providing invaluable experience working in the industry. He continued to broaden his skills within the design industry, expanding his skill set across digital design, product design and website development. He has developed a wide range of skills and abilities to help meet clients needs and expectations.
With over 7 years experience in the design industry, Will has always been a creative individual, he strives to continuously expand his knowledge and learn new skills so that he can always provide the best creative outcome for any project, large or small.
Gaming, tech and the outdoors, Will loves the creative fantasy and digital worlds found in games as much as he does the beautiful real world natural wonders.
Darcy is one of our talented video editors, regularly delivering high quality content, no matter the brief. Having completed a degree in Communication Design and with five years experience in the creative industry, he is well equipped to tackle a wide variety of briefs.
Since joining the Cameron Damon Media team, Darcy has been involved with a range of different projects for different mediums, from online content to television to cinema. Notable examples are the CIAVIC history documentary and the My Road to Adventure television series.
Darcy has always had a passion for creative pursuits; film-making, illustration and photography to name a few. In his spare time, you’ll find him drawing, reading, hiking or cooking something delicious.
Patrick is a passionate and innovative member of the Cameron Damon Media team.
Currently working primarily in areas of production such as videography and video-editing, he also helps out the team with audio (recording and editing) and photography.
Pat strives to become a visionary for the team as an efficient all-rounder.
Back in his early years of high school, Pat discovered his love for producing music and writing lyrics with Hip-Hop being at the core of his musical journey. Over the years, this journey has grown inclusive of Jazz, with a fascination for improvisation in art and life. Other interests include reading, environmental and social activism, art, photography, philosophy and mindfulness.
After working with the Cameron Damon team for almost six years as a happy client, Irene recently joined the team as Sales Manager. Irene is well-known for her enthusiasm, eye for detail and drive, which she brings along with her wherever she goes.
Her positive attitude and passion result in finding new opportunities and possibilities in every situation. You will notice by her accent that Irene is originally from the Netherlands, where she studied Marketing and Leisure Management.
Cats, cheese and (camping) trips: that’s Irene. Living in St Kilda, this Dutchy also loves being active and outdoors. Whether this is during a four-day hike to Machu Picchu, the Winery Walkabout in Rutherglen or a stroll along the bay in St. Kilda; as long as there is a ray of sunshine Irene can be found outside.
