I met Dominic on set shooting a campaign and later collaborated on some portraits. Dominic was abducted from his home in northern Uganda by the Lord's Resistance Army and trained as a child soldier at the age of nine. He managed to escape and his story was discovered by a documentary film team and shown in the 2007 doc "war dance". This led to Dominic being invited to finish his education in Toronto on a full scholarship while living with a host family. Dominic has since become a filmmaker in Toronto and produced a documentary titled "safari", focusing on 2 former child soldiers and their journey from Uganda to Canada.
