I gave geetar playing a second try tonight since being injured 11 years ago and boy was it fun! I kinda have to figure everything out right on the spot and by ear since I don’t have a guitar of my own to practice on at home.
Tonight I got to try a Mesa Boogie: Dual Rectifier, for the first time. It sounded great! I’m looking forward to getting my own rig soon! Aloha, Damon

The Office of Hawaiian Affairs or simply OHA, has an entrepreneurship course they offer to educate on opportunities of becoming a local business owner here in Hawaii. This semester was taught at Kapiolani Community College, KCC instructed by Julie Percell. Here is the graduating class of FALL 2013 semester. Julie is an amazing instructor and such a valuable expert resource to Hawaii.
Below is the graduating class and a link to my graduation presentation. Aloha

I was covered by four news channels this week; KHON, KFVE, KHNL, and KGMB. Three stations aired footage of my OVER THE EDGE rappel last night. This was for a Special Olympics Hawaii fundraiser I participated in.
The view was breath taking… I saw turtles swimming.. I blew kisses to the cheering crowd below. I was very inspired by all who participated! Anything is possible..
Media personality Jennifer Robbin’s shared this link with me. Please enjoy!
I got to rappel 31 stories down Sheraton Waikiki to help fundraise for Special Olympics Hawaii. It was a phenomenal success thanks to the amazing support team at OVER THE EDGE. I came down the skyscraper in my signature Damon Boiser wheelchair made by MOGO wheelchairs of Australia.
MOGO was amazing and hand delivered my Extreme Sport chair equipped with a free floating rear axle and 4 link suspension. This chair is built for skydiving and the other extreme sports I do. They also brought me a signature every day chair.
The rappel was wonderful and the view was amazing. I saw lots of turtles on the way down. as I neared the ground I could hear the crowd cheering and I flipped over and blew kisses down to them.
I am the first quadriplegic to do something like this in Hawaii. GoPro footage coming soon! Anything is possible… Aloha
