DAMIAN MICHAELS (1969) | Born in Virginia. Now live in Melobourne. At the age of eight, Michaels experienced his first epiphany, in the form of a visitation from his dead cousin Annie. While playing outside his grandparents’ house, he sensed a presence behind him and in his body. Annie’s voice spoke softly to him, saying she would love him and be with him throughout his life. He ran to the house, where his grandmother was on the phone receiving news of Annie’s passing.
