During his tenure as Editorial Director, the company became the largest in-flight magazine publisher in the world, with clients such as Delta Airlines, USAir, TWA, Northwest, and Iberia Airlines. Later on, Steve became Senior Marketing Director of a public company that built and developed resort properties around the U.S.
During that entire time - and in the years since leaving the corporate world - he's been one of the most active writers in America. He's written/contributed to 17 books - on travel, business, and the arts. He's written for major media all over the world, among them The New York Times, "Business Week," "Travel & Leisure," "Men's Health," The Jerusalem Post, The Irish Times, and The Associated Press.
He's written for major in-flight magazines around the world, among them "American Way," "Delta Sky," "Continental," "EnRoute" (Air Canada), and "Selamta" (Ethiopian Airlines). He's a writer for The State of Florida Division of Tourism. He blogs on travel for several websites. And he continues, as well, to write for business and arts publications.
What would he do to get a story right? Well...here's a brief sample of what he's already done to get a story right! He's been shot at in Northern Ireland. He's trained in the jungle with a rebel militia. He's jumped into an alligator pit. He's been a cowboy in Arizona. He's flown World War II fighter planes in aerial "combat." He's climbed 15,000-foot mountains. He's rafted Class V rapids (suicidal!). He's gone on an expedition to the Arctic Circle. He's climbed glaciers. He's explored ice caves at 10,000'. And he's been thrown out of a reception for Queen Elizabeth!
