Stephen (Founder, writer, podcaster) –
Having an affinity towards entertainment writing and being of a particularly nerdy disposition, Stephen created the Paper Masque blog site in early 2012 as an effort to get back into the writing game.
Since then, the website has expanded into a more multifaceted creature with retrospective review series, podcasts, and film commentaries becoming integral additions to the Paper Masque, and these have been the brainchildren of Stephen (and there are reportedly even more such children on their way).
Stephen currently is a co-host of both podcasts on the Paper Masque (The Paper Masque Podcast and Movies with a Mask On) as well as the main writer for the site.

Tom (Podcaster, writer of Super Masque Entertainment System) –
Coming to the Paper Masque with an approach of nerdiness and offbeat comedy, Tom was initially brought on as a regular podcast co-host to create a more active and conversational tone. Since then, he has more or less taken the role of the quirky, trusty sidekick.
As time went by, Tom began to bring more of his interests to the Paper Masque as is evidenced by the inclusion of more video game and Nintendo-oriented material on the site.
Tom is currently a co-host of both podcasts on the Paper Masque as well as the writer of the Super Masque Entertainment System, a series of video game reviews.
Oh yeah. Also, his favorite color is blue, and his favorite animal is the platypus. Because these things matter.
