About Us

Nathan Berg
Writer
Wielding wildly outdated terminology like “indubitably” and “YOLO,” Nathan smugly refers to himself as a writer, despite having written precisely dick in almost a year. His spirit generally lurks in the dank, musty shadows of the website (his corporeal form having long since vanished into the rancid, gaping rectum of the Midwest known as South Dakota) and enjoys writing sporadic film and game reviews, inflating his ego with opinion pieces, long walks on the beach, and eating spoiled food.

Podcast Co-Host/Critic/Writer/On Camera Personality/Co-Founder
After spending several years out East pushing the creative bent of Film Dumpster, Nick had a spiritual epiphany and clothed only in tighty whities and a button down he boarded a Winnebago and headed out to the deserts of So Cal to seek his fortune.  He remains broke and heads up the Film Dumpster Podcast.

 

 

phil profilePhil Bowman
Critic/Writer
Phil Bowman but teeters on the brink of validation, citing his noted ‘fixation on useless cultural knowledge’ as ‘justification for being a shiftless layabout.’ Such being the basis for his contributorship to the Film Dumpster writing staff, he has truly found his place amongst like minded individuals.

Tom Profile

Tom Curley
Podcast Co-Host/Critic
Tom Curley is an Academy Award and BAFTA winning sound mixer, and all around film/media/pop culture nut whose fanatical need to overachieve in his field has brought Film Dumpster some much needed credibility (though his modesty prevents him from admitting this).

 

kevin profileKevin Edward
Critic/Writer/On Camera Personality/Camera Operator & Editor/Co-Founder
Kevin Edward has done everything imaginable in failing at a career in the Entertainment industry. After making the unwise decision to move to Florida in pursuit of his creative passions, a state well known for sucking the life and very soul out of its residents, Kevin returned to Buffalo on his hands and knees and found his redemption in Film Dumpster. We are not sure what Kevin brings to Film Dumpster. What we do know, is that he has all the production equipment the team needs.

jeff profileJeff Heller
Editor/Critic/Writer/On Camera Personality/Co-Founder
Having conceived of the website in what one would consider to be a moment of desperation, Jeff Heller is amazed that the powers that be have deemed him credible enough to review films and interview celebrities.  In constant fear of being found as a fraud, Jeff plows ahead, leaping from interview to film review, hoping each time that his next leap will be the leap home.

 

Gerry Kissell (The Couch Potato Critic)
Critic/Writer
Gerry has been writing his The Couch Potato Critic reviews since 1995. Gerry has a career in both the publishing and film industries as an artist and writer. Gerry confesses to being an unrepentant smartass since childhood, though his closest friends tend to describe him more as a hilariously kind bastard.

Tony Lorenzo
Critic/Writer
Tony was the guitar player for the metal band Sons of Azrael and co-founder of the the geek-themed website and podcast The Loud Table. Sadly, Tony passed away in March of 2017 due to complications from a gunshot wound he received in 2011, which left him paralyzed from the chest down. Tony’s time with Film Dumpster had an incredible impact, and he will always be missed.
