Damien Villarreal’s resume blends an intimate knowledge of the fine art world with rich legal experience in social justice advocacy and intellectual property. Damien began working at artist Dale Chihuly’s Seattle studio in 2002 and, spanning more than a decade, this experience provided Damien with a deep understanding of the myriad opportunities and challenges facing modern‐day working artists. Upon obtaining his B.A. from the University of Washington, Damien spent time traveling throughout Southern Mexico and Central America. As a Spanish‐speaker and a descendant of Mexican immigrants, that trip allowed him to directly confront many of the obstacles facing workers, and their families, who make their way to United States in search of a better life. He subsequently obtained a Juris Doctor from Seattle University School of Law, and was admitted to the Washington State Bar in 2016. Since then, Damien’s legal practice has focused on employment, labor and immigration law, with continued advocacy work as a pro bono immigration attorney. Damien is a deeply committed to both reading and traveling. Most recently he spent seven weeks in Eastern Europe researching the historical connection between the Balkan countries and the advent of World War One. Damien welcomes, with open arms, any and all discussions involving books or travel.
