Damien Wishes To Be a Palaeontologist

Damien’s number one interest is dinosaurs. Since he was a little boy Damien has had a fascination with dragons, which transformed into a love of dinosaurs. He is always reading books, watching movies and TV shows about dinosaurs. When Damien was asked what he wanted his wish to be it was an easy decision; his wish was to be a paleontologist for a day and work alongside curators behind the scenes. The ROM facilitated this by providing a gallery tour with Dr. Hans Larsson and Dr. David Evans, which moved into the private collections and finally concluded in Brian Iwama’s palaeobiology lab. Damien shared his impressive knowledge and passion of dinosaurs as he carried conversations with Evans and Larsson like a seasoned paleo. 

Immersed in the ROM’s collections, Damien’s eyes lit up his eagerness to see and learn it all from two of his idols was truly inspiring.
