About Dominic

On November 1, 2016 I created The Startup Life Podcast, giving our audience the edge it needs in building their businesses and climbing the corporate ladder. I’ve had the pleasure of interviewing Marc Randolph (Co-Founder & First CEO of Netflix), Tom Golisano (Founder & Chairman of Paychex), and others.

I joined the Meadows Behavioral Healthcare family in 2021 as a podcast producer, editor, and host. Responsible for cultivating a diverse slate of guests ranging from mental health experts to addiction recovery professionals and beyond, he enjoys the challenge of meeting the audience's expectations. I host the long-running series Beyond Theory podcast that brings you in-depth conversations with firsthand insights from the people on the front lines of mental health and addiction recovery. On April 26th 2022, we launched the Recovery Replay, a first of its kind podcast journaling a personal story of recovery from 3 different perspectives.

On February 1st 2022, I launched the Black Is America podcast highlighting little-known African American figures and other stories.

I became a member of the Academy of Interactive & Visual Arts (November 2022)
