Dominic Ruggiero is a software test engineer and works as a contractor. He has always had an interest in and knack for tinkering with autos/bikes/pretty much everything (he still breaks shit). A few years ago he and Eric met and decided with his technical IT background and Eric being the ranting machine he is it was a match.
Dom doesn’t Facebook, linkedin, tweet, or do any of that crap. He tried it and doesn’t like it. He believes the past is what it is and should remain that way.
He grew up a military (USMC) brat and had the privilege of spending his junior and high school years in Okinawa, Japan. He hung out with some of the craziest individuals he ever met to this day over there, two of which he still claims are his best friends, Luke and Ryan. Luke is a flight engineer in the USCG and Ryan is a major in the Marine Corps. Semper Paratus and Semper fidelis. Even though Dominic doesn’t believe in all the madness going on he has faith in America and is a patriot. With best friends like that working in the positions they have it helps him maintain hope for the system. He believes in America, freedom, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. On the weekends you’ll find him wrenching or working around the house on Saturdays. He attends church most Sundays through the mountains of West Virgina on his hog with Easy Rider (Ken) and Low-T (Joe Daddy).
Current toys include a champagne pearl 1982 El Camino with a mild 350 V-8 pulling it around – as well as a black and white 1996 Harley Davidson Electra Glide with a Baker 6-speed overdrive, S&S V111, D&D fat cats, and a custom seat and bars – a 1985 Honda ATC 350x three wheeler – 1991 GMC 25′ box truck – 1994 Saturn – 2002 4Runner Limited – 2010 Yar-ass. Even with all the autos his favorite ride is his antique mustard yellow Worksman Cycles beach cruiser bicycle he built complete with huge bars, shinny fenders, a springer front fork, pegs and completed with a beer holder.
He’s been living in Western Virginia on top of a mountain for the past few years with his wife (Akiko), daughter (Hana) and three dogs (Azuki, Snoopid and Flea). He does the nine to five thing and loves every minute of it! ‘o’/ -can’t get enuff
His hobbies also include martial arts (karate & aikido), building stuff with concrete and snowboarding. He is learning to play guitar.
Want something fixed, he can do it. Looking for the kindness, he can show you that too.
He doesn’t post a lot, but he’s watching!
