Travis Lupick


In one capacity or another, Travis Lupick has been associated with the newspaper since he was 15 years old. Having joined the Straight's editorial department in 2006, Travis quickly gained a reputation as the office's resident workaholic and hopeless caffeine junkie. Despite his denials, many staff suspected that he often slept at the office.

In his own words, Travis is a writer, news junkie, obsessed with music, and doesn't sleep very much.

An avid traveler, Travis is currently working with Journalists for Human Rights as a print trainer with Front Page Africa in Monrovia, Liberia. He continues as a contributing writer with the Straight, albeit from halfway around the world.
