Since winning a scholarship to work with Deutsche Bank, Berlin in early 1992, Dominic has worked in Britain, the US and the Far East.
He is married to and has two children with Fashion TV presenter and former Miss Venezuela contestant Widmaru Calma. Dominic spends family time between their home near London, England and mango plantation on the east coast of Venezuela. His current workload involves regular travel to South East Asia and Africa.
Dominic's charity interests include homelessness and child protection. Dominic volunteers for a UK Homeless charity in his spare time, providing résumé help to the homeless and unemployed in the South of England. He is currently a trustee of a South East Asian child protection charity covering the Philippines, Laos, Thailand, Burma, Nepal and Cambodia.
Dominic vociferously promotes safer mining practices and has supplied mining security and miner welfare reports to the governments of both the Philippines (2009) and Democratic Republic of Congo (2010).
Dominic's personal interests include sport (notably rugby and jet skiing). Dominic is a member of a Surrey shooting club. Dominic is a Vice President of his local rugby club in England and Life Patron of one of his former rugby clubs, which is located in Spain.
Dominic speaks fluent French, Spanish, German and Tagalog.
As a musician, Dominic is a composer of classical music and has performed in public concerts as an instrumentalist. His musical collaboration through Calder & Wightman (Calder is a London-based classical composer) has resulted in several classical compositions being performed publicly.
Dominic is a keen writer and researcher and is enjoying ongoing success in the role of Editor of the Westminster Journal (the online political journal published since 2007).
Between 2007 and 2009 Dominic contributed research and investigative evidence to various think tank reports in the United Kingdom. This followed working as an intelligence adviser to a British Shadow Minister between 2006 and 2007.
Dominic's area of specialty centred on counter extremism and counter terrorism; with particular focus on extremist Islamism and Sri Lankan terrorism. As a consequence of this work - featuring in the British & European press, on various BBC and other mainstream TV channels - Dominic attracted a considerable amount of public interest which has continued to this day (alas, some of the interest was unwelcome from the fringes of British and World politics).
