Dominic Carter's Bio:

Traveling. That’s what TV Journalist and News Reporter Dominic Carter does frequently, and Dominic loves it. He travels either as a newsman on assignment or as a public speaker delivering speeches all across America, and Canada. Dominic still remembers his first Flight as a 12-year old minor, flying out from New York City, to go live with relatives in the suburbs of Seattle Washington. It was quite an experience because up until that time, Dominic had only known his community, a little part of the world, the Bronx N.Y, and now he was flying some six hours away. It turned out to be quite the trip. Dominic arrived at Sea-Tac Airport, which is still the name of the international airport in Seattle, more than 30 years later. He was so excited that Dominic and his family members grabbed the wrong suitcase. Who knew that the suitcases all look alike. They made the 30 to 40-minute drive all the way to Lynnwood Washington, and that’s when they discovered they had the wrong suitcase. Dominic’s uncle Lowell spared him, and went back to the airport to get the correct suitcase that was still sitting there with Dominic’s clothing in it. Since then Dominic has traveled around the globe, and as a public speaker has delivered keynote addresses on topics of Mental Illness, Child Abuse, Child Sexual Abuse, and Foster Care in Wisconsin, Texas, Kansas, Kentucky, Indiana, Mississippi, Idaho, Michigan South Carolina, Georgia and several speeches in Canada. Dominic remembers well speaking before Foster Parent Associations in Wisconsin, and Foster & Kinship Parents in Michigan. Also in the Michigan audience were adoptive workers for the state. Add to this group, the Foster Parent Association of Ontario Canada, and Foster Parents for the League of Ontario. Dominic Carter’s book on his life titled “No Momma’s Boy,” was rated a book of the year by the National Alliance on Mental Illness, and required reading by CASA organizations throughout the country, like in Helena Montana. Dominic Carter also enjoyed traveling to the great state of Kansas. In Kansas Dominic addressed the KVC Foster care organization. An address that was simulcast to Kentucky, Nebraska, and West Virginia. Returning to traveling, the longest flight of Dominic’s career was to the Persian Gulf when Dominic was assigned to go with the Rev. Jesse Jackson over a Thanksgiving. That took a total of close to 24 hours of flying. Stops included Saudi Arabia, and Bahrain. A close second in terms of what seems to take forever to arrive to, was in Africa. Dominic flew there with the American military about a C130 Cargo large aircraft. That was not a very comfortable flight. Cars and tanks can be transported in C130’s, but there were no traditional seats, instead there was netting to sit on, and everyone was given earplugs to put in, because the engines were so loud. As a journalist and newsman, Dominic works for Verizon FiOS TV 1 News in New York, and WABC Radio also in New York.
