// welcome  

Hello, I'm Trace Dominguez! I'm from Michigan, and I spent my youth working in restaurants, bars, and in retail. In college, I learned to blacksmith, and shoot cannons, I taught myself the fife and realized what I wanted to be when I grew up. Getting up in front of people made me so nervous (it still does), but it's thrilling. I love the look on a person's face when you can get them excited about a story, that face we all make when we learn something new.

// why we're here  

There are stories I can't tell without your help. I make stuff every day for Seeker, but there are stories about media literacy, history, civics and government, education, policy, and (of course) science. I wake up at night and write story ideas in my phone, but I don't have the resources to make these things myself. 

// thank you!  

I am so thankful and excited to have found you all. I want to make things with your help. Together, we can learn about the world around us, tell incredible stories, meet interesting people, and explore amazing science, because, let's be honest, we're both super into it.

// a bit about my work  

In 2010, while going to graduate school in D.C., I got an internship with Discovery. After working hard for a couple of years, they asked if I could make videos for them on YouTube. (I knew nothing about making videos, so those videos were so weird). In 2012, I teamed up with Revision3 to join DNews! The show grew and grew, and thanks to you, I now create stuff for Instagram, appear on the Science Channel, and we even got the attention of Pres. Obama. (Lemme tell you, that was super crazy!) 

Look, working at that museum, seeing the faces of people loving the magic of stories… I love the way kids and adults widen their eyes when you show them something incredible. I love that. And I know you do too. So let's do this together!

TBH, I'm not a great video editor. I do okay, but with some support I can afford to get someone to help!
