A native of Staten Island, NY, Dominick earned a spot on the 1988 Olympic team while just a Freshman at University of Illinois at Urbana. Many of his teammates (aside from Lance Ringnald) were considerably older. With only an 8th place finish at the 1988 Nationals, Dominick was not a top contender for the top spots at the 1988 Olympic Trials. Due to a strong performance at trials (he finished 6th) and in part due to some mistakes by expected Olympic Team member Dan Hayden, Dominick earned a spot on the competing team in Seoul, South Korea.

After the 1988 Olympics, Dominick returned to University of Illinois, and later transferred to complete his Senior year and Senior gymnastics season at Temple University. Despite some injuries and disappointing finishes in elite competition between the 1988 and 1992 Olympics, Dominick continued in the sport. He peaked in time for a 5th place finish at the 1992 Nationals (he was 10th in 1991 and 30th in 1990) and 6th place finish at Olympic Trials. He was one of the older and more experienced members of the team in 1992.

Unlike many former US elites, Dominick did not continue in the sport after retirement. According to IG online, Dominick is a financial consultant for Fahestock & Co., Inc. He and his wife Theresa reside in Farmwood, NJ.

Minicucci was born on January 10, 1969
