Terry Flemings: Terry is always broke and loves to party which could be problem until he found his true talent of finding parties and events that cost him $0. Coming from Port Arthur TX (RIP Pimp C, Janis Joplin.) 8 years ago he quickly got into the flow of keeping Austin weird. He enjoys volunteering for festivals such as SXSW, ATX TV Fest and Fantastic Fest. He started the Ballin on a Budget group in 2012 because he wanted one place to let his friends know where to find him at parties little did he know it would morph into page, Twitter, Instagram and website. One thing is certain he will forever be a Baller on a Budget’.
Dominic Mondragon: Dominic attended Texas A&M- Corpus Christi and The University of Texas at Austin where he received a BA in Psychology. Along with managing several bands, he has experimented in many other aspects of the music industry. Interning with several California based marketing companies, Dominic has had the chance to gain useful skills that he has put into practice in South and Central Texas. He has worked with such record companies as Tommy Boy Records, Astrealworks, and Capitol Records. He has also worked behind the scenes at events like SxSw, Austin Film Festival, Fantastic Fest, Warped Tour, and produced events such as Velocity Games. Dominic founded a company called Equal Eyez Entertainment in 2002 which he still runs today as a promotions company. Under the same name he has previously owned both a recording studio that recorded over 100 bands and released 2 compilation cd’s, and owned one of the largest music venues in South Tx. At his venue/bar, Dominic oversaw daily operations and booked over 2000 local and national touring acts. Merging three similar Facebook pages with Terry, Dominic now helps out Ballin’ on a Budget ATX.
Steve Kluchin: Steve attended St. Edward’s University where he received a BA in International Business. After working for Apple Inc, he has since moved on to working as an account manager and social media strategist. His love for Ska music is unrivaled (he is still waiting for the 4th wave). After helping to cover Springboard South in 2015, he joined the Ballin’ team. As a fan of deal sites, box services, and technology to save money to spend on craft beer; he is a welcome addition to the team.
Melissa Hoffman: Melissa attended UW-Milwaukee where she received BAs in Marketing and Finance. After working up in Milwaukee for a few years she decided it was time to get out of the cold and migrate down south to the beautiful city of Austin. She loves festivals, outdoor adventures, hot sauce, free stuff, and sharing that free stuff with others. Being the planner that she is, Melissa is always keeping busy and making sure that all of her friends are filled in on what’s happening around town. So much so that she has developed the reputation with them as the “Queen of Finding Free Shit”. When Ballin’ was looking for someone to join their team it only made sense that she reach out to contribute!
