Domeier had a clear idea that he wanted a career in acting. So after graduation, he started studying drama. He even did many plays like Picnic, The Days of Wine, and Roses during this time.
Once his acting courses were over and, he had enough experience, he moved to Hollywood to make a name in the acting field.
Initially, he did get roles here and there in movies like Dream On, Evil Dead II, etc. He also got to do many commercials. He appeared in commercials for Good year, Isuzu, etc.
However, he was not getting his breakthrough in his acting career. He even worked as a bartender to make ends meet.
He was at the lowest in both his professional and personal life. It made Domeier realize that he needed to get his act together and get a stable career. He then decided to try something bold. He started calling every possible place where he could get a job.
He made a fake identity as Ron Rosenberg. He used to call people pretending to be Ron and tell them that they should hire him as he is a great actor.
Once surfing through the channel, Domeier stumbled upon QVc and came to know about the job opportunity. At first, he sent his audition tape to them and later called them by pretending to be Ron.
Luck was on his side, as he heard back from the channel, which offered him a six-month job as a trainee. He joined QVC in 1994 and even had a backup to return to Los Angeles if things didn’t work out.
However, the channel loved the energy Domeier brought to the set so, they offered him a permanent job as a host.
Ever since then, Domeier has been working there, and it has already been twenty-seven years. He also works as a creative producer in the same show.
Besides working on the show, Domeier is also an author who has written the book Can I Get a Do Over?, which has stories from his own life.
