To Whom It May Concern

I have known Damian Lissington for almost ten years when I first used his Super Nerd services to repair my home computer.

I have always found him to be efficient and professional at all times. He quietly and patiently gets on with the task in hand.

On a personal level he has without fail displayed a calm and gentle nature and is always happy to help others, often putting their needs before his own.

In the last couple of years, I offered to help him write a brochure for his Super Uncle business and while he had some clear ideas of what he wanted included, he also listened to and took advice.

I have often seen him with young children and can honestly say that children in his care are calm, always engaged in some useful activity, (perhaps drawing, reading or playing a game) and have never thrown a tantrum in my presence. He quietly cares for them, without raising his voice and the atmosphere is peaceful and productive.

I would have no hesitation in recommending his Super Uncle or Super Nerd services and am happy for anyone to contact me to discuss any of the above in more detail. My contact number is 0408 221 725.

I have known DAMIAN LISSINGTON for over ten years. He has been looking after my computer with great reliability and efficiency.

He is a very presentable young gentleman, who dresses and speaks well. He appears to be well educated, and is  certainly extremely knowledgeable on his subject of computers. I believe him to be completely honest, and the kind of person who will put other people’s needs before his own: in other words he is a kind and thoughtful person.

I would unhesitatingly recommend him most strongly for any position for which he would be considered suitable.

I have known Damian Lissington for over 10 years in a professional capacity. Damian has supplied IT support services to our business over that period. I have always found Damian to be an absolute professional in his business dealings and a person of good character and integrity. In the time Damian has done IT support work for us I have also got to know him on a more personal level. He is a kind and gentle person who always puts other people first. He is always calm and collected which is probably a good trait when you deal with complex IT issues regularly.

I also know Damian has a very close relationship with his family and in particular as an uncle to his sisters children. I have regularly seen him with his nieces and am always amazed by the way he deals with them  and I can tell he is very involved in their upbringing and is a very loving uncle to his nieces.

My name is Mike Beach and I have known Damian Lissington for over 12 years. I know Damian particularly well and wish to provide an honest account of him. Damian has worked hard to find a niche in the workforce, going from working with computers to working with children and teenagers.

During his time as a computer repair expert, Damian competently undertook any job thrown at him and was always solving my computer problems. He responded quickly and efficiently to get my computer working time and again. I also referred friends to him who were very satisfied with his work.

I trust Damian wholeheartedly and have no hesitation in stating that he is reliable and dependable and of good character.

Damian’s best qualities are that he is a caring person; he knows the importance of family and friendship and holds those bonds close to him. I often saw him with his nieces and nephews and know that he responds well to them.

Damian has long running experience in looking after youngsters and I wish him well in his endeavours as a mobile day care child minding service.

He makes a great SuperUncle.

Re: Damian Lissington

To whom it may concern

I have known Damian since about 2005. I first met him through a local flyer he had posted in our letterbox. At the time he was starting up his own computer based business, & I called on him to fix a problem I had with my PC.

He did indeed fix the problem, & I found him to be trustworthy, friendly, efficient, and very knowledgeable. I have constantly used him since then, and continue to do so to this day.

I do this, because I know that he always has the customers interest at heart, so I feel that he will never try to “sell” me something, I don’t need.

I now consider Damian a friend, and would have no hesitation recommending his services to anyone.

I am more than happy for Damian to pass on my phone number to any potential client of his, so they can call me regarding my dealings with him in the past, as I only have positive words to say about him.

Peter McCulloch


Damian Lissington I have known for 20 years, Damian was our computer whizz attending to the computers at my husband’s business.

I have known Damian Lissington for approx. 11 years, in this time I have known him to be a very trustworthy and amicable person. With my husband working away and required to call on Damien his honesty and integrity has further built on this trust. His demeanor around children was clear as he was required to bring his babysitting responsibilities with him. The response of those in his care was of trust, any further queries please do not hesitate to call.

To whom it may concern.

I have known Damian for over 12 years, after a neighbour recommended him to me for a computer repair.

We realised that he knew my daughter as they went to the same High School.

I can only speak very highly of Damian as I feel he is a quiet, confident gentleman.

He attended to my computer problems on a number of times, some of those times he was babysitting his nieces.

The children were lovely and very polite under Damian’s watchful eyes. He is a man who CAN do two things at once.

I think Damian would be a great “Super Uncle” as well as a great “Super Nerd”.

Yours faithfully

I have known Damian Lissington for 15 years. He has visited both our home and business premises as our IT specialist. Damian is punctual, knowledgeable, helpful and reliable.

On every occasion the girls have been happy and content in Damian’s care.
I wish Damian every success in his Super Uncle business.

My wife and I have been receiving Mr Damian Lissington into our home since 2009. During this time Damian has served our needs for a professionally competent computer technician and information technologist to the highest standards. He has always been fair with us displaying great integrity. Damian displays great patience and is a Rolls Royce of reliability thereby guaranteeing customer satisfaction and respect.

We have also had the opportunity to see Damian interact with two of his less than 4 years of age nieces and a nephew on numerous occasions. It is apparent to us that while Damian loves the children (and they him) his relaxed control of them in an unfamiliar environment, among strangers, while undertaking highly technical work requiring quiet and concentration was most impressive. Our witness to and, involvement in all these interactions and, made the children’s’ visits with their Uncle Damian to our home something we really looked forward to.

I feel comfortable proffering this character reference relating to his ability to interact with adults and children. Based on personal experience I also believe that any adult child interaction with Damian Lissington would prove to be a good experience for all concerned.

We wish you well Damian.

Damian contacted me and asked if I would write a testimonial for his Super Uncle business.

I was thoroughly pleased to be asked.  As a family we have known Damian for over 14 years.

Firstly as an Uncle who brought his nieces and latterly nephew to Dancing classes when our daughter was attending.  He was always there for them during competitions, providing emotional support, equipment, and ongoing encouragement.  He could be seen at both lessons and competitions gently and quietly encouraging a young dancer to give it a go and do her best and that he would love them whatever the outcome.

Then in later years as our family IT guy.  Damian maintained the home computers, often turning up with a niece or nephew in tow such was his devotion to family.  The child always sat quietly doing an activity, reflecting the calm of their uncle.

Generally speaking, Damian is a generous and conscientious uncle who provides the highest of care and encourages any child he comes in contact with to achieve in whichever activity they undertake, whether this is structured or unstructured.  He continually provides positive and quiet feedback and supervision whilst being totally engaged with the child in his care.

We are writing a Character Reference for Damian Lissington to whom we have known since 2008 mainly fixing our Computers, both of us were and are very happy with Damian’s professionalism when called.

Gary and Elena Richards


I have known Damian for many years .He visited our home on lots of occasions to sort out problems with my computer.

Most times he came he had his niece with him who he was looking after. She was very young and he was very capable of looking after her and conscious of her safety and keeping her amused with an iPad while he worked.

He was very attentive to her needs and it was obvious the little girl adored Damian.

He was organised and had snacks and drinks with him for her.

I would have no problems having Damian looking after my children if they
were young and would recommend him as a great Super Uncle.

To whom it may concern

I am pleased to have the opportunity to lend my support to my young friend Damian Lissington.

I have known Damian for a number of years, firstly to use his talent at fixing my many computer errors and later to plan his future career directions. I had noticed that Damian was accompanied by his young niece with whom he had a wonderful understanding and relationship based on love for each other. Damian had willingly taken on the role of guardian for his young niece and at the same time he was able to manage the planning of his future projects.

Damian is a quietly spoken young man with a happy disposition, who understands completely both the rewards and the strict requirements of working with young children.

Both Judith (my wife) and I would be delighted to leave our Grandchildren in his care knowing they were able to be well looked after.

Damian at Super Nerd was our computer expert for many years, ( until we
moved here to the Gold Coast),Damian visited our home office every time we
had a tech concern with one of our computers,( even to just help us out with
the workings of the new computers, which he set up from day one),

We ran a home based business at the time, at times it was 7 days so we
relied on our computers to be in good working order.

Damian was always very reliable, totally professional, friendly, and always
on time, Damian was always dedicated in what he was doing, often he would
work after hours and never leave our office until the problem was repaired.

We were always very satisfied with Damian’s work ethics.

On several occasions, he was accompanied by his little niece, for whom he was caring at the time. From my observations of him at these times, he appeared to be a good uncle, looking after the physical, mental and emotional needs of the little girl in a sensible and healthy manner.

From my experience of him, I feel that I can recommend Damian as a trustworthy person.

I first met Damian some years ago when he had his own computing business. I always found him to be prompt and of a pleasant demeanour. At times he would arrive with his young nephew or niece and I was amazed at how he took on that role as well. He was attentive to their needs as well as the computer issue at hand. I would have no hesitation in recommending him for a role in working with children.

This is to verify that I have known Damian Lissington for approximately eight or nine years.

In that time he came to my home many times to attend to my computer through his Super Nerd business. He often brought his little niece, when he had been responsible for baby sitting her. They were both comfortable with each other.

Judith Rossi



Damian has been my computer technician for about 12 years.

In the early years he would bring his very young  nieces  (2-5 years old) with him.

Damian was caring but firm with them, giving his expectations and re-directing if they did not comply.    The girls enjoyed being with him and responded well to his requests.

I offer my best wishes to Damian with his  “Super Uncle”  business.

Yours sincerely,

It is with pleasure I write this character reference for Damian Lissington – the Super Uncle.

Damian, in his capacity as Super Nerd, supported me in my bookkeeping business as well as those of some of my clients.   During the many years I have known Damian he was always reliable, polite, honest and a pleasure to deal with.

I have always found Damian to be extremely personable and would help me personally whenever he could and went beyond what was expected of an IT Specialist.   On occasion when it was necessary for Damian to bring his nieces with him to my home he treated them and my home with the utmost of respect.  His nieces were a credit to him, they were well behaved and most of all happy and content even in a stranger’s home.   He is a loving and caring uncle and I believe that this career choice is a wise decision on Damian’s part as he is a loving, caring person who cares for young and old alike.

Damian, I wish you nothing but success and happiness.

Reference for Damian Lissington. Dated Sunday 25th November, 2018

To whom it may concern.

I have been in association with Damian Lissington over a period of about 8 – 10 years. During that time he has attended to all my difficulties with my computer.

He has always made himself available and been punctual in attendance, and professional in his work. Nothing has been too much trouble to him and I have come to value his experience and knowledge.

On occasion he has done the double duty of Babysitting for his young nieces, and has managed this with quiet and controlled small children with him while has attended to my computering needs.

My observation of his behaviour with his nieces is that he has a good relationship with them, and that they are comfortable in his role. There has never been any disruption to him while doing this dual role. The children have been quiet, and happy and very content to be with him. They have been trusting of him and relaxed and well occupied.

My observations have been that there has been a very peaceful and accepting role of Niece and Uncle between Damian and his small charges.

Yours sincerely,

I have known Damian Lissington for 15years first as the Super Nerd who fixed my computer and still does, also we have become great friends over the years.  He has been to my home with his nieces who he looked after on many occasions.

He is also very reliable, honest and caring, which is what is most important.

To Whom It May Concern,

I have known Damian Lissington for over 10 years. I first met Damian via a friend’s recommendation when I required my computer to be repaired. During this time, Damian has always been very reliable, punctual and friendly. He is always willing to come to my home any time of the day/night to rectify a problem.

During many of his visits, Damian would bring his young niece with him while fixing our computer. She was always very excited to be with her Uncle, with him ensuring she was always happy. Damian’s new Super Uncle business seemed like a natural transition after witnessing how good he is with children.

I would have no hesitations in recommending Damian to any new prospective client wanting to use his services in either of his businesses.

To Whom It May Concern

I know Damian Lissington for more ten years now from when I started using his Super Nerd services to install new computers and network at our office.

I can honestly say that he is honest, efficient, creative and professional at all times when I asked him to solve our computers.

Damian is calm and gentle of nature and is always ready and happy to help, even when he is too busy and try to get out of his way to help someone.

When I booked Damian one day to fix the computer he asked me if he could bring his niece with him and if I had any problems with it, obviously I said no problem bring her with you.

I was amazed how he dealt with looking after his niece and at the same time serviced our computers, he even made time to organise a bowl of fresh fruit and a yummy drink for his niece.

This was such a refreshing experience for me that I told Damian that he don’t have to ask anymore and just bring her in, it was a pleasure to watch. (something else to look at than a computer screen)

If you are after a person you can trust your kids too than Damian the Super Uncle is the person to ring.

I have no hesitation in recommending Damian’s services.

He makes the best SUPER UNCLE in the state.

I first met Damian when both my husband and I encountered problems with our computers.  Over the past 15 years we have had to get help from him on many occasions, possibly 2 or 3 times a year.

Whenever Damian arrived he would always be accompanied by one of his young nieces, as he was caring daily for them while their mothers were at work.  We were always impressed by his patience and expertise in dealing with the young girls, from changing nappies and toileting to being prepared with bottles and snacks when required.

Damian always projects a very calming attitude and when he mentioned he was thinking of venturing into childcare, it seemed to me to be the very career path that he should undertake.

He is a very dependable person and I have no hesitation in recommending him in this field.  He is also, of course, a very capable person in dealing with computer problems.

To whom it may concern

I have known Damian for over six years, when a friend recommended him to me after I had a bad experience with a purchase of a new computer that I required for Video editing. I soon realized that I was dealing now with a very knowledgeable and honest person who recognized what I needed.

Over the years I have recommended Damian to my friends who are very pleased with his ability to solve their computer problems in a courteous and helpful manner.

When servicing my computer call outs, Damian usually had in his care his young niece, which you could not help but notice the care and affection he took in looking after her and the way she responded to him, so it was no surprise to me when he decided to start a child minding service.

I would recommend Damian to anyone requiring his service’s, he would be most proficient in whatever venture he decides on.


I have known Damian for over six years now, always been very reliable when it came to keeping an appointment to fix my computer, on some occasions he would bring with him his niece and was able to work on my computer and look after her at the same time, super work for super nerd.

To Whom it May Concern:

I am please to write this Character Reference on behalf of Mr Damian Lissington.

I have had the privilege of knowing Damian for over twelve (12) years.

During this time, Damian has visited my home to assist with Computer Issues that occurred during this period.

On several occasions, Damian would bring his young niece with him who absolutely dotted on him.

You could see from the first time we met that Damian had such a natural report with her, and she was always well behaved and it was a testament to Damian and his natural kind manner that such a real connection existed between them.

I would have no concerns with Damian now pursuing a Child Minding Business.

He is a genuine man with a calming manner, a first rate man with sincere kindness.

Should you require any further information, I would be more than happy to talk with you

Yours Sincerely,

Gerry MacBride (0451 234 647)


I first met Damian over 12 years ago when my son went to England and I had
no-one to fix my computer!!  When Damian turned up he not only reminded me
of my son, but he was so extremely patient and understanding with two very
senior members of the community who were completely “computer illiterate”.
No matter what time I contacted Damian he would always come to fix the
problem if not that day then without fail the following day.

A few years ago Damian took on the task of looking after his young niece,
full-time and therefore she accompanied him on his computer
call-outs.  Never did I hear her say she was bored or wanted to do something
else but quietly sat either with Damian at the computer or having a drink
and biscuit with me.  She was about 3(?) at the time, and was so well
behaved that I really wasn’t aware she was around, and when asked if she
would like a drink and biscuit  would always said “yes please”,  sit on a
chair whilst eating and drinking, and when finished looked to have her hands
wiped.   I couldn’t help thinking how lovely it was to see such a well
behaved little child, all of which was very much down to the love and
attention she was given by Damian, and I’m sure in between computer
call-outs he would have found interesting things for her to do.  He also
attended dance competitions – sometimes over East – that another niece was
involved in – how many uncles do that I wonder?

Damian has talked about how he so enjoys looking after young children and of
the places they would go and the games they would play, and it was obvious
from the enthusiasm in his voice how involved he would be with his charges.
Although obviously very knowledgeable in today’s world of computers, games
etc. his main objective is to get anyone in his care out of doors in the
fresh air, and not staring at a computer screen all day.
I wish Damian all the very best with his Super Uncle venture and am sure
that any child left in his care will be treated with love and kindness
whilst having their time filled with fun and games, and at the same time
being taught how to deal with right and wrong.

Good luck Damian – Sheila Downton


Hi Damian,

You asked if we would provide you with a letter of support for your proposed venture into the area of child-minding. I did give you an indication that I would do so … but, on reflection, I have come to the conclusion that there would be a distinct absence of sincerity on my part if I were to provide you with such a letter. There are a couple of reasons for reaching these conclusions….

(i) I am quite concerned that you would be entering a field of endeavour that would be fraught with pit-falls and hazards associated with dealing with children. We are all aware of the massive volume of accusations that have been put forward in recent years in the matter of adults associating themselves with children. So often accusations are made against adults….. the accusations inevitably become matters of public alarm. Police become involved and very often the target adult becomes the victim, which seems to be the sole objective of that amorphous body of faceless people known collectively as the ‘Me Too..’ movement. The penalties for any perceived breach of new child-minding principles are necessarily pitched to reflect the newly established levels of indignation and public outrage

(ii) The other matter of concern would be that you may need a measure of formalised training to give some authenticity to your proposed activities. Our ‘experience’ of your child-rearing skills were limited to a few occasions when you visited us to assist with our computer difficulties and you had your Sister’s kids in tow. The kids seemed to have an expectation that a full run of the house would be available to them along with light snacks and occasional gentle supervision until the computer work was completed.

So, Damian, I will decline to provide you with a letter of support for the type of activity that you are proposing. Get a better activity to pursue …. you’ve got excellent computer skills and no doubt other attributes that could be put to use. Looking after other peoples kids (outside of your own family) would seem to be a perilous way to go forward for a young man with recognisable abilities.

Regards Mike Howieson.


To whom it may concern,

Please be advised that I have known Damian Lissington for over a decade. Over that time I have had manifold business dealings with Damian & have been always impressed with his honesty, diligence, intellect & acumen. I was further impressed over the last few years when Damian invariably arrived accompanied by his young niece who unfortunately was separated from her mother @ the time…Damian displayed avuncular affection & care for his little charge which was so apparently reciprocal. I have no hesitation in recommending Damian as a caring & conscientious guardian of children.

To whom it may concern

I have used Damian’s services for 8+ years. His efficient reliable skillset has always resolved my technical issues. In addition the cost is always more than competitive compared to other technicians.

On the majority of visits he was accompanied by his niece whom in the early days was only 1 year old. Damian showed great care & was totally at ease with someone so young. Likewise his niece was relaxed & comfortable in his care.

Damian will always be my first port of call to resolve computer related issues.

Stuart Johnson



To whom it may concern.

I have known Damian Lissington for over 12 years. He has looked after my computer requirements in a very efficient and professional manner. Damian is very proud of the service he provides and his attitude reflects this.

On a number of occasions he combined babysitting duties with his computer work. He looked after his pre-school niece at our home, setting her up alongside him so he could supervise her and still carry on with his work.

I have no hesitation in recommending Damian as a person whose honesty and integrity is beyond question.

Yours faithfully,

Mike Mazzella


To Whom It May Concern

I have known Damian Lissington for about 15 years when we first used his Super Nerd services to repair our home computer.

He was always on time, very efficient and very patient in explaining what was wrong and how to rectify the issues.

There were times when he would bring his niece along as he was on babysitting duties and I was very impressed with how caring and patient he was with her.

I have recommended him to friends and family for his Super Nerd service and seeing how good he was with his niece I would have no hesitation in recommending his Super Uncle or Super Nerd services in the future.

To whom it may concern,

I have known Damian Lissington for approximately 15 years, as he has assisted our office in the upgrade of computers, technological equipment and other office equipment to keep our business going.

I have found Damian to be of good character, honest, reliable and he is always spoken well in front of staff and clientele whilst he has been here. On a few of the occasions that he has been here, he has been with his nieces and nephews, who are well behaved and interacted with any other children at the time.

Damian always spoke politely and was authoritative if needed to be, I am confident that Damian interacts well around children and is well conversed with the nature of children and their many needs.

We are a child focused business, so it is imperative that any person attending our premises, whether it be for business or advice, we are conscious that they are safe to be around children and with that in mind, I can confidently say that Damian is very well experienced with children and is respectful for their needs.

If you need further information, please don’t hesitate to contact me on the phone numbers listed above.

This letter is to confirm that I have known Damian Lissington for approximately fifteen (15) years in a professional sense. He has worked on my computers and printers installing software and fixing problems as they occurred.

I have found him to be very trustworthy and reliable. He has always made every effort to accommodate my requests, no matter how trivial. On the occasional visit he was accompanied by his young nieces, as they were under his care at the time. I have found his professionalism very refreshing – he is open and honest. I have been able to trust his judgement, as his technical suggestions have been “spot on”.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Damian for any position he may be seeking. I can be contacted on 0400 217 548.

Damian has been a wonderful help with our computers over many years. It has been lovely to watch Damian grow from an awkward young adult to a confident and mature man.

He impressed me with his passion for whatever he does.

Damian often came to us to assist with technical and hardware concerns bringing his young nieces. Just picked up from gymnastics or off to Irish dancing! What a loving and kind uncle, I thought!!

It was easy to see the rapport and love he had for them and their love for him!

All the very best Damian. You will do well in life and undoubtedly make a dependable and super-nanny! Highly recommended!

God bless.

To whom it may concern,

I have known Damian for 6 years he has been to my house numerous of times to help me with my computer, every time he has come over he has brought his niece with him or a friends daughter. I noticed him to be very dedicated to the children putting them first at all times. I admire how he would come to do work for me and bring a child with him and always make sure that they were safe and in a good environment before commencing any work. I also noticed that the children would always gravitate to him as he is a very patient and caring gentleman.

Damian has also been to my salon a couple of times with a couple of children that he was looking after and I noticed that they were happy and secure with him. In summary Damian is a very responsible and caring gentleman.


Bruno Pesce




I have known Damian (Through his computer service and repair occupation) for around four or more years.

His computer knowledge appears to be quite wide and during this time he has updated our system-twice-to Windows 7 then to 10 – and has assisted our Daughter in updating her computer also.

I consider him to be reasonable in pricing, and very attentive to the work at hand. He generally completes the job in good time. He is quite helpful in answering and computer type questions that you may have.

I would mention that on two or three occasions he had a two to three year old toddler with him who played with some toys whilst he worked, and appeared quite content. He mentioned that she was a niece of his.

We have been dealing with Damian Lissington for about 15 years.

Over this time we have called Damian to fix our home and in store computers.

We have always been able to rely on Damian for an immediate response.

On every occasion Damian has been able to fix the problem.

In recent years, Damian has bought his niece with him to our house while he works. Isla is a very sweet girl and is happy to play on her own, and will sometimes play with our young son.

I have recommended and will continue to recommend Damian to others.

Mobile SUPER NERD (IT Specialist) and SUPER UNCLE (Child Care Services)

Dianne and I have known Damian for over 12 years in his role as our Computer repair and maintenance technician and he has been coming to our home on a regular basis during this time. He has always displayed great patience, reliability and integrity regardless of how silly and simple our questions and issues with our home computers must have appeared at times. Damian always offered advice on upgrades for additional hardware options and services for our computer system at home but was never pushy or tried to hard sell his recommendations. Damian has always been punctual, knowledgeable and reliable.

We have also had the opportunity to see Damian interact with his nieces and nephews on numerous occasions when he has brought them with him (in his role as Super Uncle Child care), while he has been working on our computer system. His relaxed control of them in an unfamiliar environment, among strangers, while undertaking technical work requiring quiet and concentration was very impressive. On every occasion the children have been happy and content in Damian’s care.

We are very comfortable to offer this character and business reference for Damian relating to his ability as an IT Specialist and also how he interacts with adults and children at all times. Based on personal experience we also believe that any interaction with Damian Lissington in either role as the Super Nerd and/or as the caring Super Uncle would prove to be a good experience for all concerned.

Please do not hesitate to contact either Dianne or myself on our mobile below at any time for a personal reference if so required.

I have known Damian Lissington for several years through his IT Business, SuperNerd.  I felt comfortable immediately with Damian in my home, and found him to be a friendly, yet Professional and likeable young man.

Damian often brought one of his nieces with him to my home, and I observed at the time, what a wonderful, caring Uncle he was. Damian has several nieces and nephews and has cared for them all since they were very young, and always speaks proudly of them and their achievements.

I would have no hesitation at all in employing Damian to care for my Grandchildren, or to recommend him to Friends and Families.

If anyone would like to speak with me personally, I would be happy for Damian to give you my number.

To Whom It May Concern

This is a personal character reference for Damian Lissington, whom I have known personally since January 2013.

I first met Damian when I was having computer and internet issues and he was recommended to me by my sister.  (My sister having met him through school network connections with his nieces and nephews attending the same school as her children).

In my experience Damian was always punctual, polite, and respectful and would not leave until all issues were resolved.  His work ethic was beyond reproach.

Over the years Damian has continued to provide my family with computer technology support, including purchasing new equipment, and helping me set software to protect my children.

During these years Damian often presented carrying one or two of his nieces and or nephews ranging from the age of 18 months to 5 years.  I was delighted to see such a young man with no children of his own, behave in such a loving, efficient and emotionally intelligent way to these children.

Damian has currently branched out from his computer work to look after children.  This is not a role that you would regularly see a man take on.  However, I believe this is a perfect position for him to take on as he has all the characteristics to care, protect and support children.

I would be happy to discuss my reference if required.  I can be contacted on 0411614289.

Hi there , have known Damian since many years , he has been my super nerd , any time I have had a computer problem he was there in a very promptly fashion and fixed all problems quickly and efficiently. It has always been a pleasure dealing with Damian.

Stefan Connolly


To whom it may concern

Damian Lissington was recommended to us by a friend in 2002 when we were looking for someone to service and repair our computers at work and at home.

We can call ourselves really lucky to have met a kind and gentle person like Damian 17 years ago. To us he has not only shown his skills as a computer expert, but we also experienced how much he does and cares for his family.

We have seen him at home and at work already often in a Super uncle role multitasking, when fixing the computer and also looking after one of his nephews or nieces in the most caring manner.

We know he loves kids and they will love him.
All the best Damian, you will be a great Super Uncle

Character reference for Damian Lissington

I have known Damian Lissington for over 10 years.  Damian was always punctual whenever there was an issue with my computer. Rescuing me from much stress at a time when my University assignment were due. On the weekends, Damian was largely occupied spending time with his family. Often driving his nieces and nephews around to sports and birthdays activities and many other family friendly places.  On Sundays he never worked, but wholeheartedly devoted this day to his family needs and commitments. Damian would say that helping them felt so rewarding, thoroughly enjoying the experience of spending time with them.

Damian was always prompt and efficient in his fixing-computer job. He was recommended to me by my friend who works as a Workplace Learning Coordinator. Throughout the years we both got to know Damian on a deeper level. My friend spoke how Damian is truly gifted with children. I remember her saying how Damian, besides fixing computer, should pursue a career in education or something like childcare, or early education jobs. Believing him to be reasonably skilful and genuinely talented in this area of employment.

I am mother of three (two girls and a boy), now adults, and it was a lovely thing to witness Damian interacting so well with his nieces. On one occasion he brought his niece along.  His sister was working. Damian’s niece was so cute, delightful and confident little person.  We had lovely chats together. I was amazed to see how a three year old could read so many words and even understand some of the mathematical concepts that might be little hard to grasp at such a young age.

Through these little interactions, Damian’s niece mostly preferred to hang around her uncle’s presence, while he worked. Damian was never bothered with it, and would handle her with much patience and humility. Even when she seems tired and demanding, he knew how to discipline her, with much firmness and love. Making her dutiful and smiling all over again. It seems to me that Damian was much involved in his nieces’ education and upbringing.

Damian would describe his niece little character with much delight and contentment. I also read him as one who could foresee the ways in which they could reach their potential. For sure, he was a great role male model to his nieces and nephews.

Plus, whenever I encouraged his niece to play with some toys, in the piano room, before leaving, Damian would always make sure that she tidies up everything.  Damian is very approachable and easy going individual. Very professional and possessing qualities that will inspire many.

I believe that parents can rest assured that he will do a good job in career he wants to pursue.

I have known Damian for 10 years, starting with him fixing my computer.  He was actually recommended to me by a computer fix-it man who did not have time to take my computer issue on, and he highly recommended Damian.  When Damian used to come and fix our computer he used to bring his niece and I could see first-hand that the diligence he showed with his computer business, he also gave to the care of his niece.  The affection and closeness between the two was obvious, and very warming to say the least – always bought a smile to our faces!  Damian always showed great patience and care towards her, and we could see that she too responded with the same love and care.  Damian always shows so much positive spirit and enthusiasmsup, he’s one in a million!


Mr Damian Lissington has been known to me for a number of years, in his capacity as a computer consultant.

He has visited my home on several occasions during our association.

On some of these visits he has had in his company small children for whom he was responsible and has shown himself to be caring and respectful.

I wish Damian good luck in the future with any new ventures he decides to pursue and feel confident he will acquit himself with diligence and due care.

Yours sincerely

I have known Damian Lissington for over 15 years.

We first met when he came to fix my computer.

As well as doing a great job he would have his lovely young niece with him as he used to look after her while his sister was working.

He has a great relationship with her and you could tell she idolised him, it was lovely to watch their communication.

He also has great rapport with my husband, daughter and grandchildren.

I have gotten to know Damian over these 15 years and have upmost faith and trust in him, he is reliable and his personal qualities are of a very high order.

I would totally recommend Damian without reservation as a fantastic “Super Uncle” a man of integrity and ability.

We have known Damian Lissington for about 5 years through his computer services as Super Nerd.  He has visited our home on numerous occasions during this time and has always proved to be honest, reliable and pleasant.  He was always very prompt and efficient with our computer repairs.  We have always felt comfortable for him to be in our home.

On occasions, he was accompanied by his little niece, who he was caring for at the time.  From what we saw, he appeared to be very good and patient with her.

From our experience of him, we feel he is honest and trustworthy.

Andy & Maggie Knox


We have known Damien for five years in his capacity as a computer whiz.   He was always ready to help us and would come in the evenings or weekends if necessary – he was very accommodating.

For quite some time he was also looking after his nieces, and three times he brought a little girl along with him as he was also needed in a child-care situation that day.  The children loved him, relied on him and you could see there was great affection between them.

I have no hesitation in giving Damien this character reference.

Lin McDonald


I have known Damian Lissington for a good 5 years as the Super Nerd.

To Whom It May Concern

I have known Damien through his business Super Nerd for over 10 years, I have found him to be reliable, completely trustworthy and extremely professional.

Damien comes to my home to assist me with my computer issues and has often brought his delightful young nieces with him who he has been caring for. He is a very supportive in their dancing and a very understanding uncle to the girls.

I would not hesitate in recommending him in a career working with children.

I have known Damian for close on six years and am happy to confirm that he very much lives up to his name of being a “SUPER-UNCLE”.

Damian visited our home over many years wearing his other hat as a Super-Nerd computer fix-it man.

During these visits, he also brought with him his young nieces for whom he was providing regular care.

In between fixing our computer woes, Damian was attentive to the needs of his young nieces.

He has a very calming, confident and reassuring manner which helps young children feel safe in a range of different environments.

Damian is also resourceful and creative, and would no doubt be the kind of super, super-uncle most kids dream of having in their own family.

Yours sincerely,

Deirdre Croft

I have known Damian for some ten years, and have had frequent contact with him.  He also cares for my computers.

I have always found him to be polite, understanding, always on time and intelligent, and I think he will without a doubt make a success of anything he sets out to do.

I would have no qualms in recommending him to anyone. As far as Super Uncle goes, Damian being a very caring and honest person will be an asset to whoever requires his services.

Damian Lissington has been helping us with our computer woes off and on since he started his Super Nerd home service some years ago.

We  found it quite novel when during that time, his young niece, a pre-schooler, would accompany him. Over the years, this became the norm when Damian visited.

Damian’s niece presented as a self-confidant and inquisitive little girl, happily playing with the toys that we had here. She always seemed very comfortable in Uncle Damian’s care.

It was apparent that Damian was a gentle, quietly spoken man, who was always patient and understanding with her. We are pleased that he is using these qualities and his caring experience with his niece, to help families with the intermittent need for care  of their children.

I have known Damian Lissington as Super Nerd, computer Guru for some 20 or more years, during that time he has proved to be very polite and operates his business in a very professional manner always solving the issues at hand or offering advice accordingly.

Over The past years he has started his new Business Super Uncle and the title says it all, he has certainly been a wonderful uncle to all his nieces and nephews, many times bringing them with him on his rounds.

He has proved that he has such a caring and nurturing nature on many occasions. I sincerely wish him the very best with his new venture and believe he will be amazing in his new role.
