It was in Las Vegas where Dino began to pursue his interest in music. He studied music, eventually earning a Bachelor’s Degree, at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. He shortly after scored a job as a radio DJ on the college radio station, where he was given his own morning show called Urban Sunrise. He eventually became the music director of KCEP, Las Vegas’s biggest black music station. Dino also DJ’d at local clubs during this period.

Dino began performing with the band Esquire in the 1980s, later becoming a solo artist. Some of his best known songs throughout the decade include “I Like It,” “Romeo,” “24/7,” and “Summer Girls.”

In the summer of 1989, Dino was asked to open up for the New Kids on the Block. This gave him a wider fan base. By the end of the decade, he had a record deal with Island Records. In the early 1990s, he would move to East West Records. While at Island, Dino formed his own production studio – ONID Productions.

Once his career as an artist came to an end, Dino was able to keep producing other artists. Some of his noteworthy production credits include the song “Watch Me Shine” by Joanna Pacitti, which was issued on the soundtrack to the film Legally Blonde, as well as songs by such artists as Paul Taylor and Tonya Mitchell.
