Coming from a troubled past and difficult childhood, Dominic has conquered adversity throughout his life. He was the first born of 7, literally born into leadership. With an abusive drug-addicted father, his family faced tragic events and poverty. His only escape was athleticism.
Football was his passion and he excelled at every level, starting at every position he played. Dominic stood out as an athlete and that brought him lots of attention and accolades while young.
When Dominic turned 14 his parents divorced, which in turn required his mom to work two jobs and Dominic to care for his siblings. At that point, his childhood fell apart. To cope, he started using drugs and ended up running from his overwhelming responsibilities. Inevitably, he ended up in serious trouble.
Eventually, Dominic learned to become accountable for himself and his actions. He decided to rise to the challenge and start the process of repairing the damage and rebuilding his life.
Dominic then became a father and learned to love himself. He learned to fight in every aspect of the word and overcome obstacles. He still fights every day… in life, in the ring, and to become the best fighter in the Northwest, and beyond.
