Staff Spotlight – Mark Dominguez

What’s your role at the university?
Utilities Mechanic

How long have you been at LMU?
Two years

What has been your proudest moment since you’ve been at LMU?
I have to say the proudest moment since I have been here is being recognized by upper management on the work that I have done since I have been here.

What is the most important thing you have learned since joining LMU?
I have learned that not every job is stressful. Since I have been here I always come to work with a smile and go home with a smile too. That has to do with the great management team I work for.

Before working at LMU, what was the most unusual or interesting job you’ve had?
Before coming to LMU I worked for a forging company as a heat treater. I drove forklifts that could lift the capacity of 33,000 lbs and also drove huge manipulators. It was a super dangerous job and I liked the excitement but I couldn’t do that job forever.

Favorite movie?
North Shore or Bronx Tale.

What would be the title of your autobiography?
Commitment to Excellence

When you’re away from work, what is your favorite thing to do?
Riding dirt bikes and body boarding really helps my peace of mind.

Name a place you’ve never been where you would like to travel to most.
Hawaii. I would really love to body board the waves over there!
