SwitchFlip is the brainchild of Damon R. Howard, a multi-talented artist/musician/marketing guru headquartered in Venice Beach, California. Originally from the Surburban Philadelphia area, Damon earned a living as an Advertising & Marketing Director for his area’s leading entertainment variety magazine. (2003-2006). Still yearning to blend art and music on a higher level, he launched Elix-R with a successful music event series called “Loaded” on the east coast (2005-2006). What prompts a coastal transplant (right before today’s tough economic times) you may ask? It is simple. An entertainment marketing guru such as Damon “Zambezi” Howard needs to swim with the sharks! But seriously, check the pedigree below…..

In the late 90’s he toured the United States extensively as a signed musician w/ The Verge (Big Deal/Caroline Records) and fell in love with L.A.’s artistic freedom of expression. After relocating to the Venice area in 2000 with a new act he produced called Comet vs. Planet, Damon began his entertainment marketing quest by working with ABC Television & Radio Networks (2000-2002). When working under the Alternative  & Comedy  Series Development department, he had a chance to submerge himself as an executive director’s assistant roll for many well known series such as “Dharma and Greg”, “Two Guys and a Girl”, “Who Wants to Be A Millionaire”, “The Mole” , “Making The Band ” Series 1, etc.

After a year of the TV side of ABC, Damon then found his way under the “audio” umbrella of Disney/ABC Radio  with KABC & KLOS Networks .  Just as his momentum was flourishing,  a family tragedy right around the 9/11 terrorist attacks derailed the mission.  He then decided to venture back east to the  southern suburban Philadelphia  area to regroup with his roots.  As the Phoenix arisen from the ashes, Mr. Howard continued to progress in his entertainment marketing career with Out&About Magazine (2003-2006), Loaded Music Series (5-part Original Band Showcase series 2005-2006), and even starting a new Independent Music and Film Expo in Venice aptly titled “VFMX” (to inaugurate his relocation to LA in 2007).  Once settled on the Westside of Los Angeles, Damon teamed up with various film directors (Jonas Morales, Knoko Chappelle, Anthony Mandler) and music video projects in 2007 to present. This led to the opportunity to work with/on projects such as Snoop Dogg music video “Boss’ Life” and his VH1 reality show “Snoop Dogg’s Doggfatherhood”.

Currently Damon implemented the Website Development side of his company by working for an international web development house called imFORZA Internet Marketing/ The Design People, Inc. (2008-2010). This has lead to his recent affiliation with Smarter Social Media, in which he is Managing Director (2011).  Mr. Howard has been forging an artistic assault on “the industry” with his distinctive flair for music, advertising & promotions. Now blending his TEN Year veteran marketing/design skills with his extensive music production and event planning expertise, Damon R. Howard & newly renamed “SwitchFlip” present the artistic elixir!
