Raised by a single mother in Stroudsburg, a small town in Pennsylvania, Damien Ellis joined the army national guard when he was a junior in high school. By his senior year, he was a combat medic and after high school, he attended nursing school on an Army grant.
While in nursing school, he realized a passion for fitness and he became a popular trainer in his local gay community. Soon after, he started producing and selling his own adult videos. That is how Damien Ellis came to the attention of Helix Studios. He currently stars as the newest recruit in Return to Helix Academy.
What do you hope to achieve in your film career?Damien Ellis: I aim to become a popular model like Blake Mitchell.
You’re certainly on your way! How did you come to film with Alex Riley?
Damien Ellis: Soon after I did my first solo scene with Helix Studios, the fans started demanding it. Alex is so sexy, I had no problem with it.
Who are you looking forward to filming with next?
Damien Ellis: I most want to film with Riley Finch. I’ve always had a thing for him. He makes me nervous when I see him. It’s hard to take my eyes off him. He is so my type.
What is your type?
Damien Ellis: I’m attracted to twinks. Many people on social media have been saying I fetishize white twinks but that’s not true. I simply think twinks are under appreciated and it’s what I’m into. I consider myself a bit of a jock and I’m usually not into guys that look like me.
Are there benefits to being black in the gay porn industry?
Damien Ellis: I probably get more work because my skin color makes me stand out from all the other Helix Models. But honestly, I hope I stand out for more than just being black. My goal is to stand out for who I am beyond the physical. I would love my fans to love me for me.
What would fans be most surprised to learn about you?
Damien Ellis: I was a bible thumper. It was my dream to be a Christian missionary because I loved going on mission trips and helping the less fortunate.
Damien Ellis: Yeah, but I changed when I returned from basic training. I became really arrogant. The party life took over. I was going to bars, using my military ID and having sex with older women who thought I was 21. I even had sex with a teacher that taught at my school. I ended up getting in trouble with a DUI. It cost me my college scholarship.
Is that how you found your way into adult film?
Damien Ellis: I eventually enrolled in another college and during summer vacation, I went to Vegas and met a guy that I fell in love with. It eventually led to my work in film. I talk about it in my Helix introduction scene.
What do you love to indulge in when no one is looking?
Damien Ellis: (Laughing) Weed.
Damien Ellis: Juice starring Tupac Shakur.
Damien Ellis: The Power of Your Subconscious Mind: Unlock the Secrets Within by Joseph Murphy.
Would you date a fan?
Damien Ellis: Yes, I have some sexy fans! But if given the choice, I would probably rather date another model because we can relate to one another.
Parting message to fans?
Damien Ellis: Check out my videos on Helix and find me on Onlyfans. I answer all dms on there.
