Summary

 Dominic is an efficient, self-motivated, well-seasoned musician and video producer with wide range of experience in technology, music/film education and the music business Industry

 To live among people as a good man, whose mere existence in any community should be an irresistible demonstration of a tower of strength to every good cause; it should also be that I am singularly modest, progressive with my vision and exhibit rare resilience.

                                                                                                                                                                                   

 To secure a position within the music Industry that will enable me to utilize my music-technology, teaching and research skills in contributing to the development of the Arts Industry; to make music since it needs to be heard, to record music since it needs to be preserved and to market music over the borders since it carries a global message.
