Plans of becoming a doctor were suddenly thrown off course when Dominic failed the MCAT – and if you could fail while going the “safe” route, you might as well fail while doing what you love.

With that in mind, Dominic booked a one-way ticket from Madison to Los Angeles to pursue acting. He managed to land a gig as Tang Wei’s acting coach for a film in Hong Kong…but even that dream was short-lived, ending just a couple of weeks into the job.

Taking things in stride, Dominic turned his side hustle as an SEO strategist into a full-time remote job while traveling to over 30 countries – reading, learning, experiencing. He’s now the founder and CEO of a multi-million dollar marketing agency, and a Forbes 30 Under 30 recipient. An unconventional path, to say the least…but it worked out. And by sharing life and career advice with the next generation of graduates, Dominic hopes to use his platform and experience to encourage them to chase after what they want.
