Andrew Dominguez

 

Co-Chair, Leadership Council

Andrew Dominguez spent his youth in Manila, Philippines before completing his education in Connecticut.  Armed with degrees in Film Studies and Economics from Wesleyan University, he moved to Los Angeles in 2012 to pursue a career in the Entertainment business. He has since spent most of his weekdays working in Film, TV, and Video Game finance, and many of his weekends producing short films and music videos. His short films have screened at the Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival, the ICon Science Fiction & Fantasy Festival in Tel-Aviv, and the Hollyshorts Festival in Los Angeles.  He currently serves as a member of the Executive Leadership Council for Hollywood Heart, a non-profit organization based in Pasadena, California that delivers arts education to resilient youth from around the United States.   
 
In helping to found the Junior Board of the MINDS Foundation, Andrew is seeking to fulfill two goals:  to support the mission of bringing mental healthcare to those in need, and to help create a pathway for capable and compassionate young professionals to become deeply involved with meaningful philanthropic initiatives early in their careers with the intent of developing the necessary skills to make valuable contributions to non-profit organizations in the future. 
Andrew splits his time between Los Angeles and Manila.
