Our second guest is millinery and accessory designer Otis Damo'n.
At age 15, Otis Damo´n had contemplated suicide the summer before his 10th grade year. Otis hid his thoughts of ending this lonely state of depression through his laughter & caring for others. After meeting & confiding to educator Gleora Sibley of his suicidal thoughts, Otis was instructed to attend Mrs. Sibley's class everyday on his lunch break. Sibley taught him sewing & entreprenuership techniques. Finding his niche in this whole creative & fashion world Otis Damo´n began creating a collection of hats. Little did he know that his talents would fester a career involving head transformations. Otis Damo´n had garned a significant following for his hats from community residence. Former Hempstead's Mayor James A. Garner presented Otis Damo´n a Citation for Entreprenuership at the age of 16."

Let's talk about art!
Whether you're an artist or not, life with a brain injury takes a ton of creativity. I left my career as a rehabilitation clinician and became an artist after a TBI in 2010. The arts saved me by giving me a community and a way to explain my situation in a way other people could get it.
Making art can be adapted to any and all disabilities, and there are as many types of art or ways of expression as there are people. How do you use art? Personal expression, therapy, rehabilitation, political statement, or community building?
Whether you do drawing, photography, music, decorating, writing, sculpting, painting, sewing, movies, graffiti or any type of art, let's chat! You can introduce listeners to your art form and share with us the ways you adapt your art to work for a person living with a brain injury.
