Corey Kleinsasser – Rancho Cucamonga, California

Owner / Editor-in-Chief for Concert Crap since October 2013

I graduated from Cal Poly Pomona in 2015 with a degree in Journalism, and I have worked various jobs in the journalism and public relations field, on top of Editor-in-Chief for Concert Crap throughout.  I have plenty of communications skills in editing, creating content, writing, public relations, photography, website editing, publicity, and more. I started Concert Crap in October 2013 for a class and ran with it, creating posts for every show that I’ve attended with photos and reviews, and slowly moving towards additional endeavors such as artist interviews, album reviews, features and more.

Matthew Saunders – La Verne, California

Photographer / Writer for Concert Crap since ???

I am an aspiring writer currently based out of Southern California.  I am currently pursuing a degree in Communications at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona. When I’m not writing for Concert Crap, I can usually be found trying to sharpen my skills on guitar or researching new products that could help him achieve certain guitar tones. Also, I like going to shows (especially at Chain Reaction), going to shows, and trying new food.

Chris Ventura – La Puente, California

Associate Producer for Concert Crap since ???

I’m a 2014 Cal Poly Pomona graduate with a degree in Communication/Journalism. Aside from my day job, I’m a freelance writer/photographer and have had years of experience in radio, internet, and television production—including my own experimental project: The Chris Ventura Show on iTunes and YouTube. There’s something absolutely fantastic about starting out with an idea and bringing it to life; starting with a blank slate, exploring the limits of the medium, and then exploiting those limits with the creative talents of a great team, and then to end with a completed project that entertains and/or informs others—something all can be proud of having created together–is the greatest thing on Earth. I’m constantly on the go, and music is a big part of my life. It’s amazing how a certain song can make you feel—perhaps a fond memory or simply the appreciation of a wonderful work of musical art. I have the greatest respect for all musicians, songwriters, and vocalists out there.

Karen Shalev –

Writer / Photographer for Concert Crap since ???

By day, I’m a freelance makeup artist and soon to be licensed cosmetologist. In my free time, I obsess over all things music. My music tastes range from heavy metal to opera and everything in between. I love writing about music, photographing concerts, and just plain old blasting my favorite songs.

Meg Mindlin –

Photographer for Concert Crap since

I am a freelance and concert photographer based in Long Beach, CA, as well as an artist working primarily with watercolor and graphic design. Currently I am a senior in high school but plan on pursuing a major in Marine Biology with a minor in Film and Environmental Science. Even though the ocean is the love of my life, music is a close second. I’ve been going to concerts since I was 8 and a crowded room of people squished together like sardines is as close to home as it gets for me.

Some of my favorite bands are Knuckle Puck, Pierce the Veil, The Cure, Blink-182, and Radiohead to name a few (out of a huge list but this bio isn’t big enough)!

Mauricio Gonzalez –

Writer for Concert Crap since

Based in San Diego with amazing weather and disappointing sports franchises. Started going to as many shows as possible as soon as I could drive myself and I plan to keep going until the wheels fall off. Or until I become the creepy old guy at shows.

Catalino Alvarez Jr. –

Photographer for Concert Crap since

I am an aspiring freelance photographer, currently living out in Fresno, California and have recently acquired my Bachelor’s Degree in Graphic and Multimedia Design at DeVry University.

I have some experience in graphic design, video editing, and building websites (which probably flew right out of my head sadly). Photography was one of those things that was hardly focused on in college, so that I mainly self-taught myself and that is where my interest has been stuck on since the start of 2016. As far as hobbies go, I enjoy video games, anime, and eating.
