Damian & Samantha Ingersoll— Contributing Writers
Omaha Magazine’s favorite son and Distribution Supervisor, Damian, has stepped into his writing shoes with his wife, Samantha, for this issue’s restaurant review. Damian, who has a degree in Early Childhood Education and English from Sacramento State, has been with Omaha Magazine for four years. Samantha, who has a degree in English and Journalism, also from Sacramento State, has worked in the banking industry for the last 20 years. Both Samantha and Damian moved to Omaha from California 11 years ago and immediately fell in love with the city. In their free time, the couple enjoys spending time outdoors, going to movies, doing DIY projects around their house, visiting local restaurants, and relaxing at their favorite spot: home. They also love spending time and energy keeping up with their 6-year-old son, who is definitely turning out just like his parents.  Well played, karma. Well-played.
