Since 2012, Dominguez has made a career of turning complex science into straightforward and thought-provoking stories for a variety of fast-paced, fun and fact-filled Discovery programming, including TestTube PlusSeeker Daily and DNews Minute.

He also has his own popular YouTube channel with over 4,000 subscribers, and 13,000 followers on Twitter @tracedominguez and on Instagram @trace501.
