Cristi Rumpza is a dark comedy writer from the sprawling, passive-aggressive planes of the Midwest. She founded Girls Aren’t Funny Productions, where she co-wrote and co-directed a pilot that premiered at the New York Television Festival. She holds a degree in Cinematography and has experience working in production for companies that include: Cracked, College Humor, and ABC. In her earlier career, Cristi worked as a Juvenile Corrections Officer, so she can also diffuse a fistfight, should one arise. Her background in Social Services contributes to the trademark unsavory yet relatable nature of her characters and she enjoys writing stories that persuade the audience to confront and question their own belief systems.
