Dominic is an Inspirational Speaker and Author who travels to share his extraordinary journey from committing criminal homicide and facing 25 years to life, at the age of 13, to becoming a positive, productive and thriving member of society. He has initiated the Walls 2 Bridges movement to inspire others to nurture their ability to connect and thrive. Dominic recently became a published author with his book Walls 2 Bridges- Deciding to Thrive, available on

At a time when an average teenager is preoccupied with social acceptance, Dominic was preparing for a pending adult sentence of 25 years to life in a state prison. The road to this horrific circumstance was paved with very thick layer of emotional walls that were built from years of bullying, low self-esteem, frustration, defensiveness, and a lack of effective communication and emotional connection. This lack of ability to identify and process his pain finally led him to a catastrophic decision. Dominic took the life of another young person.

After more than a year of court proceedings, he was transferred to the juvenile system where he remained under the court's supervision until his 21st birthday. Dominic spent his entire juvenile life in a maximum secure juvenile facility attempting to understand the origin of his catastrophic decision and learning how to process his pain and how to feel empathy for the devastating impact that his decision had on so many people. After nearly 8 years, Dominic was released at the age of twenty one and he began an entirely new journey into the unknown, once again.

Dominic reminds himself daily of the obstacles that he has overcome, and the lives that he has destroyed. He believes that life should be used to help and heal others instead of hurt them. He will never fully repair the damage that he has caused, but he has chosen to continue to share his experience with others, hoping that something he has to offer will prevent someone who is hurting from hurting others and continuing the cycle.

...So embrace this opportunity to stop reinforcing your defensive emotional walls and re-discover the advantages of building an emotional bridge over which you can reconnect with your courage to explore the amazing life that you have the potential to experience.

"People are lonely because they build walls instead of bridges." Joseph Fort Newton
