For more than 30 years, Steve has developed his skill as a communicator on diverse topics such as business, history, boating, cooking, and genealogy. He is the author of a nonfiction book and more than a dozen published articles, as well as many client-specific projects that called for accurate, compelling writing—delivered on time and ready for publication.
As owner of a successful small business for 25 years, Steve's writing projects have included employee training manuals, business plans, grant proposals, technical manuals, white papers, product descriptions, web pages, and advertising copy. His knowledge of the specialized needs of the small business shows in writing that is accurate and specific while also highly readable and engaging.
Steve has written extensively about maritime and regional history. He is the author of a book of maritime history published by a university press, and has published articles in historical journals over the past 17 years. Steve has the ability to transform detailed historical research into a narrative that brings the past to life.
When he's not writing, Steve's love of nature and outdoors drives him to pursue boating, kayaking, hiking, scuba diving, and fishing. He has written about these activities in articles, blog posts and web pages, demonstrating an ability to entertain, educate and engage people who already share these passions, as well as readers who are only just discovering them.
Steve is an experienced technical scuba diver with advanced certifications which include deep diving, mixed gas diving, cave diving, and closed-circuit rebreathers. Underwater, his passion is finding, documenting and exploring historic shipwrecks. He is the writer and producer of two independent documentary films about ships that met their ends beneath northern seas, plus a book about a shipwreck in Alaska that sank more than 100 years ago.
An accomplished home cook, Steve enjoys creating delicious, wholesome feasts for family and friends with a particular emphasis on organic vegetables, fresh-caught seafood, and locally-sourced wild foods. Many of Steve's culinary influences come from his travels in Spain, Italy and France, lands whose history, art, architecture and culture further inspires him.
A lifelong reader and book lover, Steve is a fan of history and crime fiction. His devotion to the printed word led to a successful career as owner of a large specialty retailing operation which was on the cutting edge of online bookselling beginning in 1992, and which for more than two decades operated one of the largest used bookstores in the United States.
