Dominic spent the majority of his life in Tampa, FL before moving to Austin, TX in 2013.
Son of Margaret and Mike Turchiarelli (still happily married after 36 years) from Buffalo New York, he was an avid musician from a young age and an athlete up into his college days.
Between private music lessons, Tampa Bay Youth Orchestra rehearsals, Youth Baseball season, wrestling practice and drumline performances, his schedule was kept pretty tight in the earlier years.
He attended High School at Brandon High School, was a part of a multiple time state champion wrestling team, was 3rd chair in the All State band, The Captain of the drumline, and a professional recording/touring musician all before the age of 18.
Dominic received his Bachelor’s of Science degree in Business Administration with a minor in Economics from The University of South Florida in 2011.
Two years later he moved to Austin and began a career in the Telecommunications Engineering field which he stuck with for 9 years before joining Under The Rug full time.
Some of Dom’s favorite activities include campouts, live music, culinary arts, traveling the world, making new friends, story-telling, and of course, watching his beloved Buffalo Bills (football team) play on Sundays.
His favorite thing in the whole world is his best friend Fred – his 16 year old tuxedo cat.
