Dominic’s commitment to human flourishing, in its many forms, drives his work in leadership development. He believes that flourishing is what we are all made for, yet myriad obstacles keep the weird and wonderful potential of every person pushed down in various ways. Dominic sees leadership development as the process of unlocking this potential to become more fully human and more fully ourselves.

Dominic brings LGBTQ+ perspectives to his service to organizational and individual clients. His background in interreligious dialogue and cross-cultural exchange further multiply the frames of reference he brings, especially at the intersection of leadership development with diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts.

Previously as a management consultant at McKinsey, Dominic focused on organizational transformations where developing new kinds of leadership and higher levels of capability were mission-critical. He managed teams and led projects for large companies, non-profits, and government agencies in multiple countries. At McKinsey he also founded an employee resource group for allies of LGBTQ colleagues.

As a scholar, Dominic has taught inclusive leadership while a professor of Christian theology and Islamic studies. He directed a university center for Muslim-Christian dialogue, where he integrated leadership development into interreligious dialogue programming for undergraduate students, faculty, and staff. Dominic is currently writing a book about the particular developmental opportunities and pitfalls facing gay, bi, and queer men.

Dominic earned his Ph.D. in Arabic and Islamic Studies at Harvard University, BA in French and German and MA in comparative theology at Boston College, and completed a year-long advanced Arabic program at the American University in Cairo. He is a Professional Certified Coach with the International Coach Federation.

Dominic is a resident of Manhattan, native of Nebraska, and citizen of Italy and United States. He enjoys hiking forests, running rivers, and exploring cultural life in New York and other cities.
