If I were you I will try to buy domain which is easy to remember (8-12 char long), it must be a .dot.com domain and most important it should not conflict with any existing trademark. Getting keyword-based domain is hard these days. But if you can then it is good thing.

Good luck

I don' think there is enough competition for specific domain name which you are looking for, IMO, .org tld extension could be better idea for specific area.

What I would suggest if you donít got your specific keyword rich domain then donít go behind it choose any one releated to you.
Today Most of the spiders donít give much weight for keywords in domain. Try to build you brand instead of going behind such tricky tactics.
