Professional Experience

At my core, I'm a strategist and writer helping customers grow in impact and profitability. My business, culture, science, and tech stories appear in QUARTZ/Atlantic Media, Fast Company, and New York Magazine. My Fast Company story on filmmaker Joss Whedon, Why You Need a Creative Shift instead of a Vacation, inspired my creative shift into content marketing and design strategy.

Sara Vizcarrondo When Boxoffice Magazine was hunting for new blood, a then critic at the site/magazine (Pam Grady) recommended Steve as a regular stringer. I hired him, and I'm glad I did. Steve was among the most reliable freelance critics I ever managed. He has an incredible work ethic, impeccable organization, and his writing and communications are excellent.
