My Story

Dominic Syracuse is an actor, author, teacher, speaker, and behavioral specialist living in the Los Angeles area. Since 2015, Dominic has been using principles of acting and improvisation to teach behavioral therapy to incarcerated individuals inside of the Los Angeles Prison System.

As an actor, he received his training from The Stella Adler Studio of Acting in New York, The Steppenwolf Theater in Chicago, and The Groundlings School of Improv in Los Angeles.

His methods have been certified by the California Cognitive Behavioral Institute to facilitate court-appointed anger management training and utilized by the Stella Adler Outreach Program, Five Keys Charter School, and Hollywood Impact Studios, respectively. 

He has recently developed a program of his techniques titled, "Building Character: 12 Acting Lessons for Mindful Empowerment." His first Book, "Make Belief" is scheduled to be released in 2020.
