Cheryl Hamilton is a refugee advocate. She manages communication for RefugePoint, an international non-profit organization that finds lasting solutions for the world’s most vulnerable refugees.  Outside work, she bops between Beantown’s storytelling, live music, cycling and dance scenes.

Justin Werfel spends his days as a research scientist in bioinspired robotics at Harvard, and his nights carrying off spectacular high-profile burglaries that leave the authorities baffled. Uh, we mean "storytelling." He's been a two-time Massmouth finalist and Audience Choice winner.

Katie Liesener is a writing instructor at Emmanuel College. A freelance journalist, she has written for The Boston Globe and other area periodicals.

Dana Jay Bein is an improviser, motivator, and the director of Standup Comedy for ImprovBoston where he hosts The Peoples Show and The Comedy Lottery. He has run workshops and performed at MIT, BC, BU, and UMass.   

Host H.R. Britton has been telling stories since 1993.  In 2010-11 he co-hosted massmouth's J.P. Story Slam season.
