Dominic is highly motivational before audiences, and his life is remarkable. Dominic carried a deep dark secret his entire life which almost destroyed him.

Sexually abused by his own biological mother who suffered from Mental Illness. No man ever signed Dominic's birth certificate, and his grand-father was addicted to heroin.

As a toddler, Dominic was placed in the NYC Foster Care System, after his mother was hospitalized declaring she heard "voices that told her to throw Dominic out of a window." Dominic was raised by his grandmother, and his life consisted of Public housing, Welfare, and the NY public school system. A High School counselor told Dominic not to waste his time applying to college because he said: "Dominic would be dead or in jail."

But there was something special about this young man, and Dominic rose above it all as the first one in his family to ever attend college. On a whim, he applied to the "Educational Opportunity Program" for college. Dominic managed to complete his undergraduate degree in only three years. He attended graduate school at Syracuse University before entering the New York Journalism world, interviewing Nelson Mandela and attending social events at the White House. Dominic has lived a life of tremendous highs and devastating lows..but a life of perseverance, and redemption. He has also interviewed President Bill Clinton, Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton, and current candidate Billionaire Businessman Michael Bloomberg. Dominic has traveled on assignment to Israel, the Persian Gulf, and Japan.
