Stephen Chupaska & Lauren Lumsden
Stephen Chupaska is a story producer for Mortified NYC as well as a humorist, essayist, journalist, and performer known for his amusing takes on the vagaries of early-twenty-first-century life and for his skillful execution of hilarious and embarrassing coming-of-age storytelling. Steve’s work has appeared in the New London Day, the San Diego Union-Tribune, KQED MindShift, Connecticut College Magazine, Treble magazine, and American Songwriter. A music nut, he has lugged his record collection across America— twice. He is also an Anglophile with a cricket bat, a sports fan without athletic ability, and a movie buff with your cable login.
Lauren Lumsden is Video Programming Director for Cosmopolitan.com, Hearst’s most popular website, where she frequently makes short films starring shirtless male models. Before that, she worked at DailyCandy for seven years. But, perhaps most notably of all, she started her career at Krispy Kreme Doughnuts and is still certified to manage a store. Should she quit Cosmo and go back to the land of glazed dough? The thought has never crossed her mind, she swears.
